DEMO4 Ahreum Lee - Multiple selves

DEMO4 Ahreum Lee - Multiple selves

February 2021

Multiple Selves is an experimental sound piece that contains three songs titled "Glitch Ghosts" "Glitch is Error" and "Ghost Echoes." These songs were generated by a text-to-speech application created by the artist and three choir members mimicking the sound of an artificially generated voice. This project can be presented as a three-channel video installation or as a live performance by the choir.
DEMO2 Vanessa Mardirossian : The Culture of Color: An Ecoliteracy of Textile Design

DEMO2 Vanessa Mardirossian : The Culture of Color: An Ecoliteracy of Textile Design

February 2021

What are the ecological implications of textile design? This question, which guides Vanessa Mardirossian's research-creation process, allows us to reflect on a critical approach to materiality through the design of wearable biomaterials. Our second DEMO focuses on the exhibition "Culture of Color: An Ecoliteracy of Textile Design" which presents Mardirossian's tinctorial exploration. For her, documenting the process was central. This written, visual and tactile memory work allows her to refine her thinking and her production through action. In the laboratory, experimental trial and error is part of her methodology.

Are you interested in the popularization and dissemination of research-creation?

The REC research-creation podcast (rec.hexagram.ca) is currently looking for collaborators to expand its team. We are looking for people who can assist us with the coordination of our activities as well as take part in the research, production and animation of content, depending on their motivation.

SUR_EXPOSITION : DISSEMINATION OR CREATION?

SUR_EXPOSITION : DISSEMINATION OR CREATION?

Digital creation, dissemination and mediation through the new online immersive spaces.

This event is open to the public on our Youtube channel. Organized by UQAC - École NAD, Laboratoire MIMESIS and Hexagram.

The MIMESIS laboratory (École NAD-UQAC) and Hexagram present 3 lunch-meetings to bring together creators, researchers, experts and students, who will present their work and initiatives on modalities of artistic creation, dissemination, and mediation through the new virtual and immersive spaces.

Faced with the physical social distancing imposed throughout this past year, creators had to devise - often to improvise - new work processes and dissemination strategies. The (im)material conditions of production and exhibition, as well as the urgency to acquire new skills suddenly accelerated learning curves, prompted distributed collaborations, and instigated new modalities of presentation. Although digital creation is well-anchored in the landscape of Montreal's art, cultural and creative industries, the “frame” [le cadre] of these creations is once again being probed.

During these three lunch-meetings, we will examine the new “out-of-frame” objects that emerged in the 2020-20XX context: creative works that no longer correspond to a specific genre or discipline, to a space, a type of institution or a designated audience. We will discuss digital, virtual and online interpretations of pre-existing projects, new ways for experiencing digital creations, case-studies of access and interactions enhanced by new technologies, and other forms of aesthetic experimentation.

DEMO3 Ké Medley - Compartment_Complex

DEMO3 Ké Medley - Compartment_Complex

February 2021

With Compartment_Complex, an interactive multi-screen video installation, Ké Medley asks: how does one subvert analog video’s obsolescence to engender new forms of mediated experience and prevent its eclipse from media history? In appropriating and subverting the aging aesthetic of CRT televisions, his primary objective is to better understand the implications of obsolescence and explore new ways of experiencing materiality.
