Breaking the traditional relationship between artist and audience, Mark Isbins' Living Room introduces an unexpected element of playfulness and fun to the art space. Yes, you are allowed to touch everything in the room. You can sit on all the furniture. You pick up anything and play with it and often find a surprise audio element. The cardboard radios play actual songs. The space helmet plays a clip from the Apollo 11 moon landing. The talking GI-Joe's talk. Many of the XL cassettes play music. Each one of of these cardboard sculptures require audience participation in order for the sculpture to be complete. The spray cans for instance are not finished until someone picks them up and shakes them and hears that familiar rattling sound.
