MUSIC FOR LINES AND DOTS by Aaron Zeghers
16mm and digital media installation - Gallery
Light and sound intermingle in temporal sculpture in this multi-media installation. The artist acts as animator, the illustrations act as composer and machines act as grandstand band. If music can trigger vision (ie. synaesthesia), can images therefore trigger the audible? Can machines - like humans - hear light and see sound? Sequences of animated lines and dots are intermittently triggered through various analog and digital mediums to create a cacophonic symphony.
VOYAGE INTO THE DEPTHS OF THE CHEESE NIP - Ryan Steel
16mm Installation - Gallery
Grilled onions and a slice of processed Cheddar cheese 6.49. Each layer of Winnipeg’s most treasured delicacy (the Cheese Nip) is printed onto 16mm film loops. Throughout the night each level of this Sal’s dish will be projected, deconstructing our city’s iconography.
ITN 2017: RIOT RESIST REVOLT REDUX
9PM - MIDNIGHT
Multi/Interdisciplinary Theatre - Front Patio
When the water is too polluted to drink, and the air is impossible to breathe, how will we go on? We have created stars to replace the stars we can no longer see… but what happens when even they are no longer enough to sustain us? A companion piece to the play, “Riot Resist Revolt Repeat” by Frances Koncan, “Riot Resist Revolt Redux” is a deeper exploration of Indigenous and European mythology surrounding the creation of our world, and the relationship between humankind and the planet upon which we live. A half-hour sensory journey through the diverse landscapes of human existence and hidden corners of human consciousness.
