Farfetched: Mad Science, Fringe Architecture & Visionary Engineering 

When: Jan. 17-April 26 2013

Two lively, inventive shows beckon on the campus of N.C. State. One is dedicated to the spirit of thinking outside the box. Farfetched: Mad Science, Fringe Architecture and Visionary Engineering, co-curated by Roger Manley and Tom Patterson, will feature works "ranging from perpetual motion machines to wooden computers, space ships made from floral foam, houses grown from genetically altered seeds, brain zappers and death slappers."

This exhibit is paired with an intriguing photo show by Peter Goin, titled Humanature: Photographs of the unnatural world. These photos feature such modern-day phenomena as man-made waterfalls and artificial tornadoes, as Goin aims to determine "whether nature is an illusion created by culture, or a fiction dramatically reinforced through our tradition of environmental management."

Get your post-post-everything on and check out the coolest new shows this week. Thursday's opening reception runs 6–8 p.m.; both exhibits will be up through April 26. —David Fellerath
