Get Bent! by Indianapolis artist Nathan Monk focuses on the world of trial and error, chance and experimentation. At Big Car Gallery, Monk’s multimedia installation will engage the senses through audio, video and prints.
Monk, also a self-trained experimental musician, spent several years trying different mediums and working with a variety of objects. Often, his work focused on re-purposing found and discarded objects. While he enjoyed the challenge of taking stuff and integrating it into his artwork, the mass of it all eventually became a burden. He didn’t have room to create his work. With his new approach — influenced by learning about electronic circuit bending in music — he’s able to work digitally. For more info, visit www.bigcar.org.
