    In science fiction, transdimensional describes something that comes from or relates to a dimension beyond the 3-D world we generally accept as normal. OMCA’s new multimedia site-specific installation, Notes from Camp (AKA Transdimensional Ghost Town Discotheque) is a liminal space that blurs the boundaries between natural and unnatural, city and country, camping and campy. UPDATE: This installation is on view through Sunday, April 29, 2018.
