Possible IRL Hangout
August 14th- September 26th 2015
OPENING RECEPTION FRIDAY, AUGUST 14TH 7-10


Caroline Hayes Charuk's Possible IRL Meetup presents typed language as a form of exchange that relies heavily on bodily affect. During her residency at The White Page, Charuk rendered a complete QWERTY keyboard in fabric and concrete. She used the three-dimensional letters and punctuation to type out words that rely on tone for their meaning, keeping in mind that the particular punctuation of a text message can determine whether it provokes panic or soothes its recipient. The letters deform under gravity, revealing the construction of messages as potentially laborious endeavor.
