From noon – 3pm we will be setting up across the street from Berkeley Bowl and from 6pm – 8pm we will be in front of the Compound Gallery.

In On The Road  MAP artists Peter Foucault and Chris Treggiari will be walking the length of the 49 Mile Scenic Drive in San Francisco over the course of three days (3/13 – 3/15) in March 2014. Each day they will set up temporary interactive art installation at three sites, along the route. Once the walk is completed on March 15th they will hike into Alter Space Gallery at 7pm for the opening of Wabi/Sabi, a show curated by the MicroCilmate Collective. That evening they will set up a final interactive art project and install the equipment used in the expedition as well as documentation of the project created en-route for a one-month installation in the gallery.

A second component to the project is an interactive online map. Anyone can participate in the project starting March 13th at:  http://scenic49.herokuapp.com/

A huge thanks to Nico Crissafulli and Bryan Kahler for helping us develop this interactive online component.


MicroClimate Collective presents Wabi Sabi, an exhibition of artwork in multiple genres exploring impermanence, imperfection, and the accidental.  We hope you can join us for the opening reception next Saturday, March 15th from 7-10pm which includes an alchemical painting performance by Tobias Tovera, an live screen print created on the gallery wall by Kent Manske & Eric Kneeland (with gallery attendees), and an interactive postcard installation by Mobile Arts Platform (MAP) – Peter Foucault & Chris Treggiari, which will mark the culmination of a 49 mile hike of inquiry through several rapidly changing neighborhoods of San Francisco.  In conjunction with the Wabi Sabi opening reception is an installation of found doors by the jail cell resident artist, Yulia Pinkusevich.

Wabi Sabi is a Japanese school of aesthetics inspired by Taoist and Buddhist philosophies that embraces the timeworn, the weathered, and the accidental. Asymmetry, irregularity, economy, and intimacy are key aspects; beauty waits to be discovered in the unpredictable and evolving nature of materials and form.

These ideas stand in contrast to the seamless perfection of design and built-in obsolescence that characterize the current tech-centric era. Wabi Sabi celebrates historicity by highlighting the cracks and crevices left by use. It is temporal, reflecting mortality and humanity by focusing upon the fragility and mutability of life. Accidental fissures pierce the veneer of the seemingly finished and complete. Layers of decay and erosion create visual maps of experience.
