Experience artist Brian Kane's newest floor-to-ceiling sculpture installation from his 'Real Reality Project'. Taking tongue-in-cheek inspiration from popular internet iconography, this Cambridge-based artist extracts images from the 2-D zeitgeist and creates real objects for real spaces.
CAC Gallery is one of three ‘Real Reality Project' sculpture sites that will be on view this spring across Massachusetts. Waiting for Google will exhibit as part of Memery at MASS MoCA in North Adams. OMG! will be on view at Hampden Gallery at UMass Amherst.
