Jonggeon Lee's Bridge of Paradise is a crafty tour de force: old floorboards engraved with stylized flowers and trees, as though the design of an Afghani rug had imprinted itself into the floor. Garett Yahn installs couches, a TV, a video game, a music-entertainment center, and photocopied essays on topics like "Art and Objecthood" to create a treatise in slacker guise on what can be called art. Memorable oddities include Lara Woolfson's photo of a woman in a white shirt and no pants holding a white horse and You Jin Kim's photo of a woman in a Disney Cinderella gown sitting on a toilet.
Finally, compare Kirk Amaral Snow's Sometimes It's Hard To Move On, a pair of fans blowing against the pages of a book of fairy tales set between them, with Curtis Singmaster's Struggle, an oscillating fan lying on the floor and twisting back and forth like a beetle on its back.
