What happens when you capture an orgone? The mysterious
object in the Kiosk this month alludes to psychiatrist
Wilhelm Reich's 1930's theories of orgone accumulation,
a cosmic energy that charges the cells of all living
things. Or perhaps it is a stray UFO, just happened
to fall from the sky into the waiting arms of the Kiosk?
Sleek, sculptural, and beautifully crafted, Christchurch
based artist Rachel Brunton's work could have come from
the set of a retro sci-fi movie. Inert and dormant during
the day, at night it comes alive, an eerie machine hovering
like floating plasma or fast moving particles of light
Rachel Brunton's exhibition in Kiosk is part of The
Physics Room curated series.
