Time Out says

This gallery's rather exotic name originates from a 9th-century text by the Arab philosopher and polymath Abu Yusuf Yaqub ibn Ishaq al-Kindi, or Alkindus as he's known in the West. The book, titled De Radiis, or "on rays," explores early Greek theories of physics and optics, and further posits the effect of astral rays on perception in the material world. No wonder then that this venue's slate of group exhibitions, solo shows and performances (notably in the form of Tommy Hartung's video adaptation of the BBC's classic Ascent of Man series, and Debo Eilers's Day-Glo assemblages of everyday flotsam paired with screen grabs of cluttered computer desktops) appears to express some idea of art as a form of cultural physics.
