Rules and Play 2017 Gallery Hop Exhibition

Rules and Play has returned to the Living Arts and Science Center! This year will not have a kick-off event but rather a one night Gallery Hop exhibition. The show will still run through July 11 – August 18, 2017, but for one night you can see unique one-off exhibitions that you will not see elsewhere.

This years special Gallery Hop presentations include:

  • quartet-o-phone from Nick Warner, a live performance of his “” real-time collaborative music making experience. Lexington’s Volare String Quartet ( will play a constantly changing composition based on the input of audience members from their mobile devices. Audience members will be instructed to open a special website on their phone. This will give them command of one measure of the score allowing them to choose the notes they’d like for the performer to play. Meanwhile, the input from the mobile devices is translated live into sheet music on tablet computers for the performers to play. “quartet-o-phone” moves the composition of live music to the audience itself to create immediate feedback and iterative, collaborative music and empowers the audience to make an intimate connection with the performers.
  • special VR presentations of both the Dreams project from HVRE as well as a virtual reality version of the exhibition Super Furry Neon Cat Heads.
  • a unique installation inside the planetarium
  • and all of the standard artists installations that will be up for the rest of the month.

This will be a great opportunity to check out the installations that will be on display over the course of the month, and to get to meet some of the artists of these pieces.

More information about the event can be found at our Meetup.
