“The element of surprise seems like the only given for a film that is intended to function as sort of a mad scientist’s experiment in storytelling.”

Frank Ready, Centre Daily Times (October 20, 2017)

 

“The standout in the show… an outdoor sculpture biennial in Foggy Bottom [that] has no right to be as good as this one does.”

“My favorite work in the show, it’s sci-fi nerdy and wonderfully playful”

Mike Iacovone, Bmore Art (September 14, 2016)
