Detroit Industrial Projects presents an installation by Steve Coy that explores what future spaces might look like. The exhibition runs February 6 through March 6.  The opening reception is February 6th from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m.  This installation examines real versus perceived or imagined spaces.  Using sculptural elements combined with video and wall murals, the work explores ideas about interior and exterior spaces, technology, consumption and elitism.  This installation is inspired by corporate culture, social status, pop-culture, fashion, and architecture.  For further information, contact Jeanette Strezinski at 248.840.5117 or strezins@gmail.com or visit  http://www.detroitindustrialprojects.wordpress.com.
