Ten x Ten is a collaboration between visual artists and musicians exploring visual and auditory interaction. By challenging artists to conceptualize their work across media, Ten x Ten asks participants to stretch and expand their creative process. Through producing a limited edition compilation and public presentation of the resulting artworks, Ten x Ten documents, celebrates, and promotes Chicago’s artistic community.

Our work explores a space, a suspension, between the mechanical and the organic; or, between knowledge and imagination….with fragments that at first are unfamiliar, cold, rigid, or challenging, they eventually, shaped by layering and repetition, become familiar and comforting… even creating a sense of belonging.
