Dimension Gallery presents "Infinity X Loop" opening reception
Dimension Gallery will present "Infinity X Loop," a visual art exhibition by Randall Taylor. His current body of work under the moniker Amulets expresses his interest in the intersection between visual art and music. His physical cassette tape loops are like mini-musical canvases. They create sonic tapestries in his mechanically performative installations. Using recycled tapes and players, he simultaneously fuses music, recycling, art, and nostalgia.
The visual component of his art seeks to reinvent cassette tapes and the use of magnetic tape as a medium. By surgically modifying cassettes, he is able to craft self-contained repeating units with intriguing configurations for longer loops. At times, he literally runs the tape out of the housing, running freely through the gallery space. The loops surround the viewer with the magnetic tape itself in a ceaseless circuit. Taylor's installations explore the inherent, delicate entropy in magnetic tape. Stretching and degradation gradually modify the content as it loops away toward infinity.
Following the opening reception, the exhibit will be on display through August 14.
