“I Like You Better Now”

Author: Douglas Scheider

Saturday, October 25 marked the opening of Patricia Brace and Rita Leduc’s “I Like You Better Now” ( A site-specific installation occupying the 4th floor of the Cobblestone District’s Hi-Temp Fabrication building, the work deploys sound, video, lighting, and spatial manipulation to offer a sprawling and immersive meditation on “understanding place and relationships in a world where both are in constant flux.”

Saturday’s well attended opening almost seemed to be two events at once. Around Brace and Leduc, attendees gathered to chat, smiling brightly and laughing often. Away from the charming influence of the artists, though, visitors to the space slowed down and spread out. With every step affording a new view of the projections, columns and milling guests, it was easy to become enveloped by one’s journey through the space.


Although the opening is behind us, the installation may be visited by appointment ( until November 15. Additionally, there will be a “Special Performance Evening,” featuring the Buffalo Contact Improv Jam Performance Group (BCIJPG), on November 12th, with shows at 7:00 and 8:00 p.m. The BCIJPG will be collaborating with the artists to create an improvised dance in response to the work around them. The BCIJPG has a growing resume of impressive performances, including their dance on a church at this year’s Infringement Festival and their annual Mission Improvable show.

Tickets for the event are available here.
