Mundos Alternos: Art and Science Fiction in the Americas is open now at the New York Hall of Science. It brings together contemporary artists from across the Americas.
Alien Toy, a video by Ruben Ortiz Torres, is part of the exhibition. It employs the imagery of science fiction to suggest diverse modes of existence and represent alienating ways of being in the world.
Torres’ installation is complemented by a weekly family activity in the NYSCI Design Lab titled Bots and Borders. More information is here.
