Husband-and-wife team Isabel and Alfredo Aquilizan present “In-Habit,” an installation and multimedia exhibit inspired by the Badjao indigenous people of their native Philippines.

Utilizing scaffolding and cardboard boxes to create a small-scale replica shanty town, the Brisbane, Australia-based duo’s work incorporates video and music by Badjao children. Through this piece, the artists comment on where and how we live, as well as on the limitations of freedom and migration in our rapidly changing world; Aug. 3-Nov. 10
