Vector Equilibria
is an exploration and celebration of the impact of the work of 20th Century inventor and futurist Buckminster Fuller on the science, technology and culture of today. The abstract animations of Chris Landau and the live compositions of Gene Coleman in University City during the 50th Anniversary of the Science Center and Design Philadelphia 2013 will entice us to recall Fuller's connection to Philadelphia.

Germination is a time-lapse video projection composed of Amber Johnston's still photographs, shot over 10 months during her daily travels from East Kensington to Center City and South Philly. The video is presented as a rear projection on storefront windows, intended to be viewed from outside at night. The windows double as screens that appear to "reflect" the ongoing transitions in the gentrification of Philadelphia.

Johnston writes, "…The disjointed nature of the video mirrors conflicting feelings around gentrification… This project has come to represent life's never stagnant flow. There is always change- good or bad. Life is growing and dying to make room for the new."
