The exhibition Nest is a celebration of the beautiful, creative chaos of Rhinoceropolis and of Colin Ward who embodied the spirit of Rhino in his 24/7 art and music output.
"We ( the artists involved ), believe that many environments in public space are designed with apathy and ignorance to the vivid imagination of human beings and nature. The public are largely unaware or naive to the fact that we are walking around inside the financial elites' program, which is many times void of any imaginative intention ; only driven by the desire to keep the few in control of all resources. Holding the imagination hostage and hiding the possibilities of beauty and alchemical architectural design from the masses keeps many people unaware of the creative and infinite potential of their selves as individuals and communities. Creativity is the greatest rebellion " Colin Ward

Eschewing traditional notions of imagery, this exhibit aims to shake, disrupt, and dizzy our understanding of visual culture and modern society. Photography is both a broken concept and an ever expanding medium; fluctuating between complacent states of being and important diverse artistic models. Delirium: Three Visions, is a photo-based exhibit highlighting critical contemporary voices and amplifying challenging artists working in and around modes of photography.
