The Real Fiction
The Real Fiction is a multi-media installation, created by Lycoming College Art majors Joshua R. Troxler and Rene Pucilowski that explores the world of Science Fiction through art. “We are really inspired by the 'cheesy' sci-fi, however, there is nothing 'cheesy' about the themes we are exploring. We created pieces that examine time travel, outer space, recycling, technology and the future of the planet."
"The Real Fiction was a trial run for us. We had never done a show before and this was a combination of art and ideas that we thought made sense. Overall, this show was made because we could. The show is very cinematic; it has many technological elements to tie it together. Every piece was conceived, worked on and reworked for almost 4 months and many ideas were cut and or connected to other ideas. In the end we produced a final show with a themed open house feel. As people walked through we got the sense of stillness. People were paying attention. That made it all worth it for us. People were getting into it. As we put the show up and took it down, we both felt a sense of accomplishment. However, this accomplishment only lasted a few minutes. We are ready to start something new, stay tuned..." - Rene and Josh
