“I have this terrifying thought from my childhood. One day, without notice, the sun will become a red giant and in its death throes, will swell and swallow our planet, and all of us along with it. Alive.” - Heather Gordon

Whitney Gibson and Shelley Holcomb (Whits & Giggles)
October 6, 2017 through January 7, 2018

ISP (Internal Service Provider) is an immersive and interactive site installation that seeks to create a space for introspection and guidance in a challenging 21st Century world.

Whits & Giggles is a creative collaboration between Los Angeles-based artists Whitney Gibson and Shelley Holcomb. Seeking to normalize sexuality and speak candidly about sex from a female perspective, Gibson and Holcomb’s collaborative works explore topics of sensuality, gender, and identity. What began in 2014 as an opportunity to ‘girl talk’ using a public radio format, has led to an exploration of cultural norms, the human psyche, and an examination of all things sexual through the eyes of two contemporary women of color.
