Inside the Box/Outside the Box

Ann Arbor, MI | 2022 | multi-screen digital video

Location: Aquarium Gallery, corner of Ashley St. & W. Liberty St.

Artists: Jeremy Liesen & Matt Wilken

The more connected we are, the more alone we become.  What we do next shapes the worlds in which we live.  How do we now define boundaries?  Where can our imagination take us and why should we care? What lives outside of what we know?

Inside the Box (Outside the Box) explores how technology can shape our ideas of connection, collaboration, and cooperation while moving us away from past perceived boundaries. Let us open the doors of the mind to begin the journey forward. 

Jeremy Liesen & Matt Wilken are multimedia video artists and musicians who have been collaborating since 2016.  Known for their inventive music videos, award-winning short films, exciting live sets, and creative approaches to storytelling, they are always looking for new ways to engage audiences.
