The best way to experience JJ Peet's "Floating Heads and Time Machine" at Redling Fine Art's strip-mall gallery may be to go alone. In the eerie quiet, the darkened room feels like a closet you're hiding in. Peet has suspended a small group of steel rectangles from the ceiling in the gallery's back corner. These rectangles have long, metal arms extending from them and human hair, fabric or black plastic drapes hanging from those arms. The silent film projected large across the wall adjacent to the door takes lingering looks at some of the same objects that appear in the sculptures and, as you're watching it, you might see the shadowy figures of passers-by through the black-plastic covered doors and hear their voices, their unawareness of you making you feel all the more tucked away. 6757 Santa Monica Blvd.; through Feb. 24.
