LAS CRUCES, New Mexico – September 22, 2017 – The Gallery at Big Picture is presenting something very different at the second Ave. L – it’s an ART thing! event on October 20th at 7pm. Digital artist and story writer Micah Pearson has labored over a year to present to you the multimedia experience of “The Voyage.” Through a blend of printed glass, video tablets, and other storytelling techniques, Pearson portrays the transition from adolescence into adulthood against the backdrop of a colorful, vibrant, and fantastic multiverse – a space in which we discover that we are specs of dust in the cosmos, and that a grain of sand contains vast universes of potential. You’ve likely never seen anything like this experience in a gallery environment.
Experience the Journey, then take it with you
In the Voyage, you will travel near enough to a star that you glimpse the boiling mass of fire and light in intricate detail. You will witness impossibly beautiful landscapes of giant Manta Ray soaring high above the clouds. You will watch the cosmos sweep out before you, inviting you to reach out and touch the infinite. You will get to experience each and every piece in the show come to life through multiple video installations. And once we’ve piqued your curiosity, you will have the opportunity to take home the digital edition of the “Traveler’s Guide to the Multiverse,” an illustrated novella containing the story that ties it all together.
