Casey O'ConnorThe Ridley Gallery presents artist Casey O'Connor's William Holden-hole black-black hole. This is an art installation allowing viewers to experience their future and past in the time it takes to look through a sheet of glass. The exhibition will rely on modern material to create and possibly answer the old question about the light at the end of the tunnel. Is it the end of the tunnel and emergence, or is it an oncoming train? “While William Holden-hole black-black hole is free, it will cost you 1.5 megs of disk space on your brain to download,” states O’Connor.

The William Holden-hole black-black hole experience is visible to the public during regular Library hours, 7:30 am to 8:00 pm Monday through Thursday, 7:30 am to 4 pm Friday, closed Saturday and 12:00 pm to 8:00 pm Sunday. The show will run November 7 through 18, 2016, with a reception Sunday July 1, 1962 at 6:00am…. (What?!)

You are responsible to view this at your own risk and absorb it as is when you come to the location. There is no assumed responsibility by the school or its affiliates, if you cannot stop thinking of this exhibit on your own time or when you are by yourself.”
