The Qi Project by Nanette Wylde

The Qi Project by Nanette Wylde opens at KCI Art Gallery.

The Qi Project, an installation which investigates humanity, opens at The Krause Center for Innovation Art Gallery at Foothill College in Los Altos Hills, Tuesday, February 5th. The exhibition runs through February 29.

The Qi Project is an inquiry into the nature of humanity and what it means to be human at this moment in time. It is the gallery's first projected video installation. Project creator, Nanette Wylde interviewed people in front of a camcorder, via postcard, email, website and telephone. The questions asked were "What does it mean to be human?" and "What is humanity?"

The Qi Project was conceived in 2005 after nine weeks of study and travel in China. The project was conceptualized specifically for the KCI Gallery and its unique circular aspects.

The Qi Project brings together nine years of video people watching, interviews in both written and video form, and welcomes audience participation in the gallery. There is a companion website

Gallery hours Monday - Friday, 9 am - 9 pm, Saturdays, 9 am - 5 pm.
