“Collaborative performances by Jeff Kolar (Chicago-based sound and media artist, composer, and curator) and jonCates (School of the Art Institute of Chicago) utilize an array of electronic and analog instruments, as well as devices designed and fabricated by hand, to create new electromagnetic infrastructures proposing alternate narratives and experiences.
