UNFAMILIAR MOODS One of the rooms at “Palimpsestic.”

Matthew Underwood of Providence fills a room with a sheet of dark plastic, a fan, mirrors, blinking Christmas lights, and projected lights. Everything sort of wobbles and reflects back and forth, suggesting a rippling, synthetic, underwater world.

Emily Martin of New York offers a curiously visceral video of brown fur that seems to sensually roll into a hole at the center and swallow itself. Three speakers play a sound piece by Daryl Seaver of Providence in which (what sounds like) whistles or clanging bottles seem to call to each other across the space.

The abstraction running through these works resists words, but the R.K. folks have found sharp examples that prompt curious, unfamiliar moods.
