Husband-and-wife artist team Eric and Morgan Grasham are exhibiting surprising new works that play with visual reality in Flirting With Spacetime, at San Angelo Museum of Fine Art's debuting space Gallery Verde. Their video installations, paintings, and drawings feature unimaginable human figures with multiplying faces and limbs, twisting in impossible poses. They are floating in aerial hypercubes, or cascading through abandoned and overgrown buildings. In videos, the figures corkscrew and ripple in disturbing and beautiful ways. You can never quite tell where their bodies are actually located, much less what they are doing. The effects look simultaneously genuine and super-real, and are made with home-grown software the Grashams wrote with technical help from software engineer Shirley Hallmark. "It was a simple beginning. Eric and I wanted art that focused on motion; energy, color, and light. By playing with the technology that was readily available to us, we began to see compelling results." Only after talking with astrophysicist Paul Rimmer, did the Grashams learn that their software was visualizing world lines: their subject's path through four-dimensional spacetime. The art works open a new way to see the world. The artists engage in aesthetic flirtation with the software to create the expanded perception of reality made possible by their fresh ideas and new tools.
