Matthew Steinke

For his second solo show at Northern-Southern, Matthew Steinke installs rooms of new sound and motion sculptural robotics: machines to induce a hypnotic calm.

INDUCTIVES, combines sound, light, video, robotics, and visual art to explore interpretations of the term “inductivity”, often utilized in the field of hypnotherapy and electronic theory. Improvising from a recipe involving occult ritual, toy design, artificial intelligence, experimental video, and drone music, the autonomous instruments in the installation attempt to reprogram the psyches of their spectators.

Opens Friday, April 17, 6-10pm with performances at 7:30pm and 9pm, with Fusebox extended hours: Saturday and Sunday, April 18-19, 3–7pm.
