Capsule activates the hermetic space of the “white cube” as a physical simulation of the atemporal, disembodied conversations that often occur online. Elements of the exhibition encourage visitors to converse within the space by leaving behind bodily fragments—voice recordings and PDF texts—for others to find. The exhibition builds upon conversations with nine new media artists and graphic designers conducted over the summer of 2021, which were compiled into a magazine also called Capsule. Content from the original Capsule is also on display for visitors to view. Organized by Cammie Lee ’22 and Megan Pai ’22.
