Ctrl [Alt] Self  featuring FSU alumni  Elise Thompson, Lucia Riffel, and Brittany M. Watkins reflects on the growing dependence and relationship with digital environments through painting, installation, and video. Whether online or off, scrolling content transfers from person to person, moving from screen to memory and back. Messages stream from all angles through the inundation of the virtual, motivating consumption in the material world. These three artists explore the external torrent of information vs. the internal inclination to shift inward.

Join the Opening Reception on Friday, 6/3 at 5 pm for a talk with the curator and artists followed by a wine and cheese opening reception from 6 – 8 pm. Westbobou Gallery is located at 1129 Broad St, Augusta, GA 30901.
