Aisle’s new exhibition features artsits Mike Hancock and Tim Schwallie, who have assembled disparate parts into noisemakers and paintings. Hancock’s circuit-bent interactive objects sound off in response to the viewer — knobs, amplifiers and one’s proximity to the pieces create the electronic noise. These pieces have their various switches and circuit boards arranged into simple sci-fi robot faces. Schwallie’s collaged paintings were made between 1988 and the present. Defiant, punky politics have been layered over the top, found panels, such as mass-produced Jesus paintings, to become portraits of Bush, Condi and the rest of the retiring administration. Exhibition continues 1-4 p.m. Monday-Friday through Feb. 13.
