Can’t make it on Friday, or would like a more private session? Preview hours are available Thursday, Nov 3rd. Send inquiries to rachelstuckey@gmail.com

The central work, Update Required, is a biofeedback-enhanced VR experience for personal enhancement. The program takes cues from the user’s brain signals via EEG to guide them away from the “safe zone” of Windows95. The resulting journey guides the user towards a more contemplative or critical path of technological understanding in just a few easy steps! Whether you’re a tech goddess or digitally afflicted, Update Required is a guaranteed skills boost in the realm of metaphysical computing.

Also on view are selected works from Stuckey’s video series, Estrin Tide is Fresh, Everyone Else is Tired. In her YouTube-ready tutorials, Estrin teaches her viewers how to mindhack, sleep poly-phasically, and be totally confident upgrading to a solid state hard drive.
