CFC Media Lab Alumnus Art Show: Neighbourhood Watch


WHAT: An art show of magical and interactive miniatures. Peer into the private lives of an eclectic group of people as they dream, watch TV, stare out the window and ponder the lives of their neighbours. Neighbourhood Watch brings to life a cast of whimsical characters who live in ramshackle and darling little homes. It is a show about how where we live and our space defines as much as our work and family.

WHERE AND WHEN: AWOL art gallery, May 27 – June 6, 2010

RECEPTION: Friday, May 28 from 7pm
