The Orb Gallery

From 2005-2008 the memelab curated The Orb Gallery, a 7' (2m) diameter spherical gallery.  

The Orb is a construction by Chad Oakenfold: "A novel space for artists to work in, at a certain point the image meets itself. The hope is that it will spur new forms of creative thought. Its purpose is utilitarian, much like a desk is the support for a drawing, but it is also a power play. An artist's work is embedded within another. Which is akin to infrastructure: you own a car but I own the road."

Works were shown by Andrew Taggert and Chloe Lewis, Travis Jones, Shannon Munro, Liam Wake, Jesse Scott, David Grove, and Jenny Jones.
