"Weird Science" feature artists whose work draws from scientific theories or practices, misuses science towards artistic ends, or create their own "form" of science in their work. Curated by Julie McKim, Daniel Kingery, Wyatt Nash, Erik Hougen.

The Year We Make Contact is the latest in my body of work exploring subjective image space and hybrid systems aesthetics. Drawing on our impulse for pattern recognition -- considering Rorshach inkblot imagery, Virgin Mary water stains, and poltergeists hidden within white noise among other examples -- the imagery in The Year We Make Contact oscillates between the quasi-recognizable forms of landscape, atmosphere, architecture, figure and cosmos. The ever-shifting flow of images are not shot, made or captured; they coalesce within the invented system.
