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.

February 2021

As a first DEMO, Hexagram presents Olivia Mc Gilchrist’s [Hexagram student member, Concordia University] research-creation residency, which will take place in two residencies at Le Petit Théâtre du Vieux-Noranda. Last February, she participated in the co-creation of a performative and interactive experience that links the world of video games and the performing arts. During that first phase, Olivia contributed to the development of the critical and conceptual framework of this laboratory, taking place in the framework of research-creation activities led by Jean-Ambroise Vesac [Hexagram co-investigator, Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue] and digital artist. The multidisciplinary team collaborating on this project consists of researchers, professional artists, students, technicians, as well as the French studio THEORIZ.

The documentation below focuses on this first part of the co-creation process. Stay tuned for the further developments of this DEMO!
