Meeting Point, an exhibition by Benton C Bainbridge and Xavier Figueroa, consists of generative new media and mixed media structural installations as well as print work. The pieces work together to challenge the idea of physical/digital space and its manipulation through human interaction. The use of cameras, sound responsive modules, and projections allows the audience to become fully immersed and aware of how their bodies can alter the artworks.
