Publick Playhouse Presents Chris Combs Refactoring

By East City Art Editorial Team on May 15, 2023

Thu, May 18 2023 — Fri, July 14 2023

Rxsqtta-Stzne, Chris Combs, 2019.
Opening Reception: Thursday, May 18 from 6pm to 8pm

Chris Combs’ artworks respond to pressing themes of surveillance, artificial intelligence, and algorithmic failure. He employs a wide range of practices to create circuit boards, software, and enclosures for interactive and time-based wood, metal, and found-object sculptures, which both embrace and question technology. Their custom circuitry is engineered by the artist and hand-soldered with millimeter-scale components. Combs’ sculptures address changes in our built technology environment—changes that often occur before we understand their implications. His artwork makes these macro-scale changes tangible, letting us consider them anew.

Gallery hours:

  • Monday – Friday: 10 am – 4 pm
