Westernized, Watered-down Zen Philosophies features nine artists who have found ways to express themselves across multiple media and techniques.  For some, it means making things as a designer or musician that transform into sculpture or performance, for others it means the reinvention and misinterpretation of tools, techniques and traditions resulting in surprising outcomes. Some use more ephemeral material such as found and recorded sounds that can be looped mixed played and discarded at the conclusion of an exhibition.  Others work out side of their comfort zones from potter as furniture designer or fashion designer as filmmaker. What they all have in common is a willingness to take risks with media and craft and figuring out a way to do it, in spite of the practical difficulties they encounter. The transgression of craft gives rise to surprise, humor and discovery.
