Words by the artist – METACHROMATIC is a representation of New Age Art
We aim to frighten the traditionalist.
METACHROMATIC is an ode to industry.
METACHROMATIC is a blend between the artificial and the natural.
METACHROMATIC is delicate and intricately detailed.
METACHROMATIC is bold and dynamic.
METACHROMATIC is fueled by the constant challenges of the digital artist.
METACHROMATIC is an experience.
METACHROMATIC is not computer screensavers.
METACHROMATIC is not cheating at art.
METACHROMATIC is not a computer doing the work for me.
METACHROMATIC is a challenge for the traditionalists and formalists of the art world. Challenging the beliefs of Traditional Art set by white men. Igniting a movement for change. To adapt, learn, unlearn, and experiment.

AS220 Youth FutureWorlds presents: UPSIDE UP Dance Showcase @ AS220 Black Box Theater

Enter a world created by AS220 Youth, where light shines in the dark, and where darkness disguises itself in the light. Where repeated cycles of generational curses are brought forth to the table, the dance floor, the stage, and are broken down, discussed, and rebuilt.

UPSIDE UP takes what is expected of a regular dance show, and flips it upside down while dismantling the white supremacist symptom of ‘worshiping the written word: the belief that there is only one right way.

Here, in our FUTUREWORLD, we find a way to bridge that duality through stories, movement, and expression. Come join us in a world where perfection is expected, but it’s not what it seems, where everything is just made up, until it is felt.
