True/False Art Installations

As the True/False Film Festival goes into full gear, the art installations are finally set up. With old standbys and new additions, the True/False Film Festival makes sure the art doesn't end when you leave the theater. Some, like "Unweaving The Fabric Of/Over Time," invite the viewers to participate in the artwork. Others, like "Torus Worm," ask only to be viewed.

Here are just a few of the installations you can see around town this weekend.
