Reception: Friday, August 14th, 6-8 with a Panel Discussion* commencing at 6:30 pm Gallery Hours: Wednesday - Saturday 1-7 pm and Sunday 1-5 pm onetwentyeightis excited to present Raciality. What is the racial reality of life today? It does seem to be a different experience if you’re black rather than white in this country. It does seem this way. But we are just one race - The Human Race. We speak as if we are all different races - black, white, red, yellow, brown. Yet, these are mostly social constructs, artificial creations that keep us divided. What if we were among a race of alien beings(“uchujin”)? What is some day we find ourselves in touch with beings from different universes and different realities? How would we explain ourselves? First, we would identify as human, no? Regardless of the color of our skin. And the reason it is so hard for many to do that today? Raciality.

Git_Chase : Semantics, Technology and New Text(Art)
The Chromebooks of the Autonomic Tour,
a Compendium, 2002 - 2015
The Last Book, Chromebook 13 a Wilton Manner, Ft Lauderdale Area, FL December 2014
A Creative(s) guide to understanding the meaning and provenance behind the Alterism Movement in Fine Art and Mass Communications.
Is this Art Purposefully Created to Effect Change?
Semantics Evolve, Technologies Expand and New Text(Art) Create a Mimesis. Immersionism, Gonzo Journalism, Micro-Blogging, Social Networking and Method/Character Acting Layer into a textured impasto on digital canvases. Short-Form text and New Media image capture become a remembrance of Art Happenings, Performances and Movement Studies.

The Conceptual Art Movement's Idea driven mechanisms' form the foundation of Alterism. The human form is merely a vessel to an Alter Artists. The Alterist Person and/or Form becomes No More or Less Precious than the rarified physical objects, art and artifacts which our worlds civilizations have held in great esteem and even declared priceless.

Marshall McLuhan utilized Mass Media and Computer age Philosophy along with popular news to confused, confound and eventually change the way people perceive media. In a similar fashion Alterism utilizes the subversive nature of popular (Americanized) journalism and works within the mass media machine in accordance with a system of Sense Memory triggers and the Affective Memories they produce. Alterism takes it's cues from Social Branding and Marketing techniques which have become quite ubiquitous. It also employs the same Propaganda, Rhetoric and Guerilla Tactics Current Governments frequently to control the dissemination of information.

Alterism and the Artist's Alters or Online Ego and SuperEgo (The ID) appears fictional or riddled with false realities. It is however an existential and mimetic way of portraying how we live and struggle through our many worlds.

"Becoming whomever I choose whenever I feel it will most effectively communicate my deeply personal perspectives seems outrageous to most. Ironically, the very catalyst for my art and the system and processes created to support the inherent concepts formed organically. Basically i feel that acting is reacting and the whole world, physical and digital, is my stage. A rational verbal or expressive (art) response to irrational non-verbal communication can be defined as Autonomic Response."
