"The Eternal Present" by Lucia Riffel

Lucia Riffel
In collaboration with Atlanta nonprofit Dashboard, Seminole Heights' Tempus Projects presents work from animator and illustrator Lucia Riffel. An opening reception happens on Friday, April 22 at 7 p.m., and the show is open Tuesdays and Thursdays from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., plus Fridays by appointment only.

"Lucia’s work leads viewers to the place between their minds and their screens, between space and time, between thought and feeling, and into the everyday sublime. She creates spaces in-screen and in-real-life that mix the surreal, cinematic, and commonplace through 3D animation and installation. Looping slowly yet infinitely, these spaces allow one to look through the mirror of the screen and enter a meditative headspace beyond as well as within. The post-internet culture of distraction leads our minds to occupy themselves in any way except internally - her work utilizes these same experiential stimuli to awaken interiority in a suspended metaphysical twilight zone."
