First Step on the Centraltrak

The University of Texas at Dallas provides a sneak peek at “False Space and Time of the Apartment,” the first exhibit to occupy Centraltrak -- the school's gallery and artists' residency opening Saturday in the spot formerly occupied by the Fair Park Post Office. The obvious draw at first glance? “Lifebean,” described as a "collapsible disaster shelter shaped like a bean pod," which is being shipped from San Francisco for display on Centraltrak's patio. I believe it also served as the basis for this disturbing Star Trek episode. --Robert Wilonsky
