I was very happy to participate in VIVO Media Art Centre's annual fundraiser event on April 27, 2019, BYOB: Bring Your Own Beamer!

 

Have you ever made a blanket fort out of cushions and sheets available in your home? Did you find comfort and satisfaction fabricating forts, hollows, caves and crawl areas to create a safe space? 

 

Designed as an installation-based immersive environment, viewers are confronted with a constructed installation, animation (Zandi), video loop (Wynne), lighting design, fog and a soundtrack (Sara) as they enter the room. Constructed from available furniture, including: a coat rack, chairs, benches and plinths, curtains and mylar sheeting, guests are invited inside the lightly construction tent-fort to chill on pillows and watch a video loop, active silence, all while listening to Gold's atelier soundtrack.

 

Chrysalis is a group project created specifically for BYOB with the art team, Wynne Palmer, Zandi Dandizette and Sara Gold to explore the idea of worlds within worlds and the comfort we seek!

If you're in Montreal, QC between April 12 - 27, pop into the Visual Voice Gallery to see the show Convergence - art + neuroscience! I'm 1 of 16 artists participating in Deirdre Hatton + Laura Roseros' sciart project, Urban DNA: Walking through Geotypes. All projects involve collaborations between neuro scientists and artists! Being a strong believer in STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math) as a teaching model for all ages, I was more than happy to participate in further learning.




Thank you to editors, Katrina Vera Wong and Raymond Nakamura of Science Borealis for interviewing and quoting me for their article on SciArt!

 

SciArt is the bridging of personal experience and visual articulation to scientific theory. It is a meeting place for a conversation between artists and scientists. Please read full article in link below.

While pervasive in our culture, from comic books to movies and television, the term “parallel universe” is just one facet of the astronomical theory of the multiverse. NODE_ is a photo-based project that explores interpretations of portals, time travel and parallel worlds.

When I was very young my favorite book was H. G. Wells “The Time Machine” (1895) and my favorite television show was Irwin Allen’s “Time Tunnel.” Broadcast for only one year, from 1966-67, the series covered the multiple attempts of two top-secret government scientists, who were lost in time, trying to return home. The concept of this show had an impact on me as a young child, pushing my interpretation of the world in which I lived and planting a seed of life-long query into the boundaries of my lived experience. Over the years of reading archaeology, science and esoteric books discussing pillars, doorways and portals to alternate worlds or ‘realms’ by many current and ancient cultures, I started comparing concepts I was learning to current quantum physics, energy and time-space research


... "If you want to find the secrets of the universe, think in terms of energy, frequency and vibration." ~ Nikola Tesla
