From the moment the garage door closes, a daily string of interactions with lifeless home appliances begins. You walk to the refrigerator, perusing through possible dinner options. A green CLEAN light on the dishwasher greets you, bringing to mind that load of laundry in the dryer. Heading that way, a cool gust of glorious AC caresses summertime skin, as the muffled revving of your neighbor's lawnmower roars in the distance.

These exchanges and more are what the folks at Big Car Collaborative will be shedding light on as a part of their pop-up Good Vibrations art show, happening this Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the K&S Appliance store in Garfield Park. In addition to artists recruited from Elsewhere (a living museum in Greensboro, North Carolina), gallery organizer Niina Cochran has invited several locals to exhibit at the store their various drawings and writings -- all of which will be exploring the routine course of large appliance lifetimes. Visitors are also encouraged to contribute their own dishwasher-, washing machine- or refrigerator-inspired offerings to the gallery.
