Right now through July 17th you can check out an exhibit at Creative Arts Workshop— a juried show with artists from all around the country. The show is called “Intelligent Objects,” though curator George Fifield says,

This is not an exhibition of intelligent objects, nor was it meant to be. It is an exhibition of art that addresses, in some manner, questions of intelligence and empathy. What does it mean for a sculpture to be nervous? What does it mean for a wall to breathe? Each piece in the show asks a similar question, not always having a satisfactory answer, but then art doesn’t have to answer the questions it asks, that is our job as the audience.

Some pieces in the show incorporate technology directly, others make more oblique references to mechanical and digital processes, or the unreal artificial intelligence of things that appear to be, but are not real.
