AN IMMERSIVE ART EXPERIENCE
OPENING FRIDAY JULY 8th, 2022!
Featuring New Mexico Artist Lea Anderson
Lea Anderson, an Albuquerque-based installation and mixed-media contemporary artist, collaborates with the creative minds at Electric Playhouse to create a new and amazing virtual immersive art experience!
MICRODOSE will stimulate your senses and your imagination and will introduce you to a brand-new, totally unique and hypnotic art experience for all ages! Step into an incredible, artistic universe of vibrant, living ideas and familiar but never-before-seen “alternative” life forms
This cutting-edge, immersive art experience explores the captivating realm of an “imagined biology”,” a gorgeous, psychedelic chemistry combining meticulously hand-made, mixed media artworks with electronic design and interactive animation. Dynamic movement, intriguing color, and strangely thought-provoking forms echo the curiously intricate and ever-evolving variations of the micro-natural world.
Anderson says, “My work draws on a paradox: while all things are made from the same ingredients, each individual organism is still completely unique. I hope to inspire your imagination as well as a heightened appreciation of the natural world, the miracle of life on our planet, and the infinite diversity and preciousness of living organisms. If you love exploring nature, you will love this show!”
Electric Playhouse Artistic Coding Collaborators: Ben Matthews, Luke Balaoro, and Maddy Minnis
Daytime availability for large groups, companies and school field trips are available.
Lea Anderson, a San Diego native, has lived and worked in New Mexico since 2003 and has discovered much during her adventures in the dramatic, colorful, and wild desert environment.
Often working in multiples and accumulations, each installation piece or body of work cultivates forms and patterns that suggest complex biological characteristics, and can be compared to botanical material, fungi, ocean life, or microbes. Repetitive patterns interweave with unique and irregular components, creating a dynamic interplay that echoes living systems.
Anderson has exhibited throughout New Mexico and the USA, as well as internationally in Bangkok, Thailand. In 2015, Anderson was invited to create a monumental, digitally-produced installation piece for the Atrium windows of the Albuquerque Museum as their Summer Artist-in-Residence. She received her MFA in Painting and Drawing from the University of New Mexico.
Currently, Anderson is exploring her “biomorphic” artwork in many different forms, including full-room installations, sculpture, mixed media drawings, laser cutting, and immersive collaborations with Electric Playhouse.
