RMA Institute Gallery presents "Maya Tattva-Vaisraddi: Illusion and the Science of Reality", a collection of digital photo-montages by New York-based artist Bruce Gundersen which were inspired by the flora and fauna of Southeast Asia.
The Tattva-Vaisraddi of the title refers to an ancient Indian text on the workings of the natural world. Gundersen explores a landscape animated by forces not visible to the sensory eye. It represents a layering of the seen world, with glimpses of metaphysical energies and actions which flow, thinly veiled, behind a sensory landscape where realities are plural and relative.

The participating artists respond to "high" and "low" technology and its effects in terms of the capacity for infinite reproduction, the predominance of virtuality and the non-hierarchical character of how we consume images and representation.
