‘Dark Loops’ by Margaret Noble: A Multimedia Exhibition of Interwoven Realities, Artifice, and Ecocriticism

 

San Diego, CA – December 15, 2023 – "Dark Loops," an immersive contemporary art exhibition by Margaret Noble, invites exploration into the intricate connections between living and non-living entities, nature, and technology. Presented by the Mesa College Art Gallery, this exhibition will be showcased from February 5th to 29th, with the opening on February 8 from 4:30 - 7:00 PM. 

 

Noble's thought-provoking installations challenge conventional perceptions. They seamlessly blend elements of reality and illusion, organic and inorganic, prompting audiences to reconsider humanity's relationship with the environment and technological advancements.

 

Through a diverse mix of sculptures, live-streaming videos, preserved insects, and technology-infused components, "Dark Loops" creates artificial ecosystems within the exhibition space. These installations blur the boundaries between the digital and physical worlds, encouraging contemplation on the complexities of our surroundings.

 

Visitors will encounter an array of creatures and elements within Noble's artwork, ranging from bees and moths to reptiles and cocoons. These creations aim to challenge traditional taxidermy, offering a unique perspective on the interconnectedness of various elements within our environment.

 

The exhibition's immersive experience extends through works like "Horizon" and "Infinite Bee," playing with the contrast between projected illusions and their real-life counterparts. These installations provoke introspection on how our perceptions are shaped in an increasingly digitized world.

 

"Dark Loops" invites viewers to examine the intricate relationships defining our existence. Noble's interactive experiences prompt reflection on the interconnected patterns surrounding us, emphasizing the significance of acknowledging these interdependencies in fostering environmental consciousness.

Artist ( Description ): 

Born in Texas and raised in California, Margaret Noble’s experimental artworks have been exhibited nationally and internationally. Her interdisciplinary work resides at the intersection of sound, sculpture, and performance. She holds a BA in Philosophy from the University of California, San Diego, and an MFA in Sound Art from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Noble’s work is influenced by the dynamic, dance music cultures of southern California which flourished from the 1980s to the 1990s and later led her to perform as an electronic music DJ in the underground club community of Chicago. In 2004, she branched out from the dance floor into experimental sound art for new audiences which intersected the electronic sound scene and the visual arts community. During this transition, Margaret created sound works for collaborative projects in video, dance, and object theatre. Her interdisciplinary artworks have now evolved into interactive sculptures and installations investigating technology, psychology, and environmentalism.
