Manifest Creative Research Gallery kicks off its 2009 exhibition year with two single-artist shows, David Dotson's The BorgDot Works and Tama Hochbaum’s Looking Through the Glass. The first, in the main gallery, features a series of cyborg-like sculptural works — bio-mechanical “creatures,” almost microscopic in size, according to the gallery's description — presented in lighted tubular cases. The Oxford, Ohio-based Dotson has said the work functions as a subtle jab at corporate manipulation of the natural order. Chapel Hill, N.C.-based Hochbaum will display composite digital prints similar to those of hers included in Manifest's Trick of the Light show. The shows continue Tuesday-Saturday through Feb. 20.
