The new Atlanta-based foundation Possible Futures is presenting a slate of art installations, including one this weekend.

“Convergent Frequencies” is a site-specific multimedia creation by ArtBox on a vacant lot at Krog Street and Irwin Avenue in Inman Park. It includes three large shipping containers covered with art inspired by surrounding neighborhoods, and enhanced with video and field recordings.

The wheatpaste portraits are by Matt Haffner,  field recordings by Nat Slaughter and video projections by Matt Gilbert. ArtBox is a collaboration of Possible Futures and the i45 galleries of Inman Park, Old 4th Ward and Little 5 Points.

6 p.m.-midnight Friday, Saturday and Sunday, Sept. 17-19, with live music at 9 each night.  Free. (The work will be presented again Oct. 1 at Flux Projects’ FLUX art night, 8 p.m.-2 a.m., in Castleberry Hill.)

Here are two more fall projects coming from  Possible Futures, as described in a release from the recently established art nonprofit:

  • Sabotage (aka, The Tickle Machine), an interactive installation of textile-based art by Stacy Scibelli, presented by Possible Futures as an associated project at Flux Projects’ FLUX art night in Castleberry Hill on October 1st from 8pm to 2am.

Scibelli’s inventive clothing and sculptural objects encourage viewers to engage in intimate physical contact that’s sometimes disarmingly comical, yet rich in its psychological dialogue. Scibelli works out of Brooklyn, New York.

For more on Scibelli’s work, see http://www.stacyascibelli.com/. To see The Tickle Machine in action, watch this video: http://www.possiblefuturesatl.org/projects.html

  • Crocheting the Ocean, a tableau created by Atlanta photographer and installation artist Dorothy O’Connor, presented by Possible Futures October 9th from 7pm to 10pm at 1371 Fairbanks Street, Atlanta 30310.

For her photo shoots, O’Connor spends months building elaborate dreamscapes in her garage. She uses found objects, items purchased on eBay, and detritus that the wind blows in. This is the third time she has opened up one of her worlds for public view, with her model creating a tableau vivant (“Green 2” from 2008 is attached). The installation takes place in conjunction with ACP 12, Atlanta Celebrates Photography’s annual festival.
