Earth Week Special Event: presenting the “Live Cube” – Artists in residence at CSUEB present the “Live Cube” reception with Artist talk! A visit into the Live Cube, a one-room space, gives a glimpse of what Earth might be like in a resource-starved future. It tells the story of one man’s life in the dystopian society through the objects in his tiny house. As visitors explore the space, the objects they touch will trigger an audio excerpt of the life the fictional man leads in a world lacking sufficient water, energy and oil. For example, pushing the water pump triggers the man’s thoughts about living with a rationed amount of water sent by the government. Free Admission. Light refreshments provided.
