SAN FRANCISCO, CA - Digital Artist Tim Roseborough conjures an artistic interpretation of a "Haunted House" in the installation, "Here Is The Room" at Scenius Gallery. "Here Is The Room" is on display from October 13 to November 14, 2009. Special night viewings will occur throughout the exhibition. Visit scenius.com for calendar and appointment information.

The opening reception will be held on Wednesday, October 14, 2009, 5 pm to 8pm. Admission is Free. Scenius is located at 3150 18th Street, #104, San Francisco, CA 94110. Call (415) 420-2509 or visit www.scenius.com for more information.

Alluding to infamous crimes and the aesthetics of horror cinema, the immersive installation visits a room in a home that has been deemed a crime scene. The room has been cleared of corporeal evidence, but a fateful tale is told through a set of Polaroid photographs, echoing the practices of some of America's most infamous killers.

The now-obsolete Polaroid films will be re-created as digitally manipulated prints. The project will include HereIsTheRoom.com, a companion Web site that will document and annotate the installation.

"'Here Is The Room' follows the tradition of gothic and macabre art. It represents the unbridled 'id' of the American psyche. In this piece, victim and perpetrator are the same, highlighting the fact that true terror is neither fantastical nor supernatural, but firmly grounded in the potential for evil that lies within all of us," says Roseborough.

"Here Is The Room" is on display from October 13 to November 14, 2009. The opening reception will be held on Wednesday, October 14, 2009, 5 pm to 8pm. Admission is Free. Scenius is located at 3150 18th Street, #104, San Francisco, CA 94110. Call (415) 420-2509 or visit www.scenius.com for more information.
