*particle group* in Inside the Wave (San Diego/Tijuana)

Inside the Wave: Six San Diego/Tijuana artists construct social art features individual artists and artist groups working within spheres of alternative cultures to produce thought-provoking works that bind material culture to everyday life. The artists—bulbo, Brian Dick, Adriene Jenik, *particle group*, Zlatan Vukosavljevic, and Allison Wiese—all produce art that engages ideas about how societies construct meaning through material production for human consumption. Physical interaction with the art object, either by the artist or the viewer, is the preferred tactic for conveying their personal explorations into social and political questions. Featuring presentations of states of contingency of objects, actions and ideas, their works follow a path towards reintegrated if not yet fully digested engagement with personal memory.

The *particle group* is comprised of artists, researchers, and computer engineers led by Ricardo Dominguez and Diane Ludin who are the Principal Investigators. Other members of the group are Nina Waisman, Interactive Installation Soundscape; Sara Carroll, Critical Particle Engineer; Marius Schebella, Program Developer; and Pierre Galaud, Cesaire José Carroll-Dominguez, Robert Twomey, and Caleb Waldorf, Assistant Researchers. The group combines digital technology, investigative research, and multimedia formats into works that forge a subversive relationship with the newest frontiers of technological science in an effort to undermine corporate assumptions of authority and power. particle group exhibited together for the first time in the Nomadic New York series, House of World Cultures, Berlin, 2007.
