Refractions at Silent Funny

Opening reception: May 1st, 6 – 10 pm

Inspired by the elements of water and light, Luftwerk presents two excerpts of recent installation-based works that merge the two into an ephemeral experience. FLOW visualizes data from the Chicago River with projected video onto a water mist screen. DROP illuminates a ripple from a single droplet of water, creating a circular pattern that expands outward.

Closing reception: May 29th, 6 – 8 pm | Live performance by Rempis/Abrams/Ra: 8:30-10:00 p.m.

Rempis/Abrams/Ra, three of Chicago’s premier musicians: Aerophonic Records founder and transcendental saxophonist Dave Rempis, avantbass player Josh Abrams, and iconic drummer Avreeayl Ra.

Silent Funny is located at 4106 W. Chicago Avenue, Chicago, IL 60651. Additional viewings by appointment throughout May. For more details please contact Matt Baron: 847-800-7455 or

FLOW / Im Fluss was made possible through the generous support of the Goethe Institut of Chicago and the ACTIVATE initiative from the Chicago Loop Allaince.
