The Way Out: a sensory deprivation art installation
on view until April 30th, 2014

The Problem Isn’t You. It’s Earth.

The Way Out is a community we’ve established on the moon in response to our planet’s terminal illness. Earth is a lost cause and living on it leads to permanent brain damage.

We’ve developed specialized sensory deprivation tanks that will free you from your Earthly neuroses and realign your senses.

On this rare occasion The Way Out has allowed the visual deprivation tanks to be on view at the Columbus College of Art & Design’s MFA Thesis Exhibition, All This Happened More or Less, until April 30th, 2014, in Columbus, Ohio, USA, Earth. Though we do not deny the objectness of this work, the focus here is on the aural. The sounds emitted in the chambers allow you to reconnect with your body’s primordial reptilian instincts.  Later this year, The Way Out: Tenets, Rites & Rituals will be published, furthering the public’s understanding of our ways.

This is an invitation.
