What people are saying:
“I’ve never seen art shown this way before” -Beatrice
“This is an immersive, soul-penetrating experience not to be missed.” -Monet
“It is a piece so magical and all encompassing. I find myself going back often to see the changes that have been lovingly made. It’s an auditory and visual experience that exemplifies divinity in our everyday experiences. A treasure in every way.” -Stacey
“As a woman, I feel satisfied by this” -Marsha
“I came to Second Bite with several of my female friends. We loved it. Being immersed in viewing the 1000’s of pictures of women felt very affirming and loving.” -Karen
“Immersive environment that can speak to you, touch you with a wholistic, artistic experience.” -Rod
“There’s nothing quite like the power of repetition. In Second Bite, the immersive experience of quickly shifting images drives home multiple points: the inherent beauty of the female form, as well as the way that beauty has been manipulated and monetized. It’s not like most of us are unaware of this, but Second Bite presents the message in a way that speech or the written word cannot, like visual Surround Sound. This buffet for the senses packs a wallop.” -Autumn
“Second Bite was a unique environment to experience and definitely an encounter one should not miss.” -Linda
“Exquisite & surreal. Magnetic.” -Martha
“I could easily sit in there for hours just absorbing it all.” -Beth
“I never been to an art exhibit that reinforces the human experience as this one does.” -Anjolie
“Using Apple products to create a “church” tickles my ironic funny bone. And I just love art that does that! It helps one see both computerization and the images of women/la virgen in a new way. That is great art!” -Maura
“It appeals to my technology fetish, but there’s so much more to it than the beauty of the displays. My mind is stimulated to posit relationships between images or segues, both on individual screens and among several that are actually independent. Never overwhelming, deliciously immersive, and conducive to contemplation.” -Doug
“A mesmerizing, inspired, thought-provoking experience.” -Roberta
