Outer Space presents:
Lens Therapy
by Colleen RJC Bratton
July 8, 2017
Myrtle Edwards Park

“We each have a lens through which we view the world. This lens is comprised of our upbringing, race, sexual identity, gender, beliefs, environment, etc. Progressive society‚Äôs inclinations towards empathy are strong yet our ability to step outside of ourselves and into the shoes of others is highly debatable. However, if a voluntary Freaky Friday situation were to take place what would those first moments feel like?
Lens Therapy is a shared experience and interactive installation that dives into mind-bending visual and textural manipulations. Created by Colleen RJC Bratton with writings by Justen Siyuan Waterhouse, Anna Kryczka, Cam LaFlam, Tiffany Owens, Ilana Zweschi, Gretchen Bennett, Lauren Moore, Theresa Endoso, & Chelsea Werner-Jatzke in cahoots with Outer Space, Lens Therapy invites anyone to join our interactive installation. ”
