Welcome to Reality™
On December 17th, 2011, with parts and support from its parent corporation, Reality™ Incorporated Co., The Reality™ Institute held its first Reality™ Expo at Control Room in downtown Los Angeles.
I curated an art exhibition with Control Room, an art space founded by artists William Kaminski and Evelena Ruether, where I featured a number of pieces created by me and fellow CalArts MFA writing students. The evening was framed as a chance to experience an authentic simulation of reality complete with Reality™ Specialists who could help patrons with any questions about reality and surveys about which parts of the exhibit seemed real and which seemed fake. At the end of the night, CalArts students performed readings for the crowd. And I couldn't have done it without my favorite Reality™ Specialist, and future wife, Danielle Matich.
