TRIIIBE • In Search of Eden
TRIIIBE opened their new exhibition as an empty, 11,000 square foot room at the 808 Gallery at Boston University in the Fall of 2010. The public was invited to explore the exhibit while the space was being transformed using photography, painting, sculpture, and performance.
In Search of Eden: A Work in Progress was a continuously evolving exhibition that played with cultural ideas of identity and values. The photographs and installation revisited the biblical creation story, the notion of temptation and the eternal quest for Eden.
Filmmaker, Yari Wolinsky made a series of films documenting the making of the In Search of Eden, A Work in Progress.

The project moves ahead with the creation of "Pink Lady" and "Golden Delicious", featuring back-alley apple dealing and the perfect nine-foot tall role model.

Eden 8 - A Work in Progress
On a quiet night in November, the mammoth 808 Gallery at Boston University is shrouded in black cloth. A set of curtains parts, revealing a pair of spot-lit sunbathing goggles. In this, the eighth and final film of the series, TRIIIBE's "In Search of Eden, A Work in Progress" moves from the privacy of the studio to this very public 11,000 square foot space...and the music begins.
