OK, it’s time to shake the eggnog and stray tinsel out of your ears and start using that brain again – Florida Atlantic art professor Tammy Knipp’s work requires a firmly screwed-on thinking cap. She “investigates the parallels between psychophysiology and interactive three-dimensional electronic media works that provoke both virtual and real experiences.” Gulp.

In point of fact this show in the alt_space room at Arts on Douglas is less purely intellectual and more fun than that artist’s statement might lead you to believe. Knipp noticed the resemblance of the United States Postal Service’s sorting bar codes to a piano keyboard and set about translating the lines of code into music, and this multimedia exhibition is the result. It’s not exactly the floor-piano scene from Big, but there is a basic philosophical similarity, and hey, you can stop off at Frozen Gold on your way home. 

opening 4-7 p.m. Saturday | through Feb. 14 | Arts on Douglas, 123 Douglas St., New Smyrna Beach | 386-428-1133 | artsondouglas.net | free
