Co-Curated with Patrick Flaherty.
Leslie Mutchler’s multi-disciplinary installations are experiments in faux-functionality and imperfect design. Utilizing the printed material language of our everyday, TrendFACTORY:INDPLS is a community-driven, multi-participatory installation exploring issues related to hand(craft), the physicality of labor, and the repetition of memes in the virtual world through hand- manufactured objects.
