Another show! Textile students of HDK will be exhibiting works created at Remfabriken, on site. Remfabriken is a living museum, a former textile mill that still produces material. April 6 – 21. I will also have a piece in the show, using an antique lace-making machine.

together you and i are like a thousand languages…

Curated by Anthea Foyer & Siobhan O’Flynn

technology + art + love = ? leads us into the spaces that explore what it is to love and to express love, longing, lust. New innovations in technology both enhance communication and some argue isolate us further, yet in the midst of our crazy, complicated, busy lives we still create room for communicating love and lust, for touching and being touched, for being present and together. The emotions that make us so strongly human drive the need for our connection and mutual recognition and new forms can amplify old emotions in surprising ways.

This is a love story….

Opening Night:
DJ TOM KUO & LEE LEE MISHI

Sign Me a Space, Harper, I/O show soon!

Sign Me a Space
Gallery 1313
1pm – 6pm
Sunday, October 12

In case you didn’t know, my audio-video installation with Erik Martinson, Sign Me a Space will be showing for one more day only. If you saw it for Nuit Blanche, I seriously recommend that you see it again. It was up with speakers for NB but is in actuality a headphone installation and is a much different experience.

One more day!

Gallery 1313

My knitted portrait of Stephen Harper is also showing at Gallery 1313! Come visit him as you would the Lincoln memorial and ask, how would Abe vote?

Grudge!

July 25th, 2008 § 0 comments § permalink

Once again, a delayed post-mortem about an amazing event. We staged a Max/MSP vs. Pd grudge match last night at InterAccess. Yes, a performance of live programming. Surprisingly, a night of programming was fun!

There’s a writeup about it here, and see photos of it at the InterAccess Flickr pool.

Luminato installation mentioned in the Globe

June 3rd, 2008 § 0 comments § permalink

The Yonge–Dundas installation was mentioned in the Toronto section of last Saturday's Globe and Mail. It's probably behind a paywall by the time you read it, but a tasty quote from the article says:

Much like the searchlight installation that lent an icon to the
festival last year, the installation will let people play with light on
a grand scale. David Pecaut, Luminato's co-chair, says he sees it as a
kind of home base for the festival this year – and one that intractably
ties itself to the city's landscape.

Rad!

After much ado, the microphones are I think being installed today. The whole thing will be operational for testing on Thursday night, and officially running as of Friday.

Catch up

Part of the function of this blog is to keep a record of things I've been up to, and sometimes that means telling you, um, a month late. January was busy!
