Michael Norcross’ Dark Matters at Indy Hall

The First Friday in May! From the peculiar mind of alum Michael Norcross (PhilaU GDC, 2009) comes Dark Matter, a curious compilation of quagmires preserved on ink and paper. Michael Norcross explores the grey areas in vivid black & white! The internet is a weird place to get lost, and Norcross hurls himself into the online unknown. Keep a safe distance and watch in awe as Dark Matter attempts to expose the abnormal for your viewing pleasure. Our aberrant artist illustrates obscure entries from the recesses of Wikipedia, portraying each with a single screen print. Transferring complex speculation into simple shapes, Norcross traps the phenomena but for a moment—long enough to witness some fragment of truth. Dark Matter moves beyond examining the unknown, it attempts to domesticate mystery on stark, 18 x 24 posters. What do Saturn, spiders and sailing stones share in common? Find out when you encounter Dark Matter on First Friday, May 1st, 2015.
