Offworld is a liminal realm of pure possibility. It’s the apex of the creative process, the alchemical fusion of research, personal voice, technical knowledge, and the summation of all one’s experiences. Passing through Offworld results in a creative synthesis that is more than the sum of its parts. Offworld is the 2011 UCLA (Bruins FTW!) Design | Media Art undergraduate exhibition, featuring student works that explore and expand. The opening reception will begin at 5pm in the New Wight Gallery at the Broad Art Center, followed by musical performances featuring Baths and Flying Lotus in the Experimental Digital Arts Space on Thursday, January 13th.
B/D Featured artist and all around badd ass artist Ryan Riss came back this season to create a follow up to his popular Acid Trip Tee. His newest design Bugged Out, truly lives up to its name with eye popping patterns that will make you want to toss on some shades and protect yourself from a bone rattling psychedelic seizure. Check out the second colorway after the jump and grab one of these before they sell out.
