What’s On

Subtle Technology Festival- Exhibit

SynSoma is an exhibition of kinetic works, which explore the relationship between the artificial and organic through subtle mechanical mimicry of natural systems.

Two installations are featured in *Hotshot

1. Robyn Moody’s Power 2: Heart Lake as seen through the eyes of Manley Natland adopts a closed system with simple repetitious mechanical functions made up of hundreds of spinning black gears of different sizes embedded with small tilted mirrors. Modeled after Heart Lake, a water source within the Alberta oilsands, the dark glistening surface suggests the separation of oil from sand through destructive processes. The varying shapes, sizes and hand made quality of each gear results in a complexity of emerging patterns going in and out of phases.

2. Steve Daniels’ sessile is a colony of 25 kinetic sculptures incorporate an open system where each robot responds to changes in ambient light levels by opening and closing their limbs. A viewer’s shadow becomes a part of the colony’s environment and a medium of interaction. Subtle differences arise from a myriad of factors including small variations in construction, surface imperfections, their orientation to ground and most importantly their internal emotional state. The work creates a dialogue between participant and object where the observed and observer are interchanged.

SUPAFRIK- Pop Up Shop

Supafrik is an experimental pop-up concept curated by Chinedu Ukabam, Creative Director of Toronto fashion label Chinedesign. A blend of art exhibition and retail, Supafrik will showcase the work of artists and entrepreneurs that are inspired by Africa.  Loosely curated around the theme of “Urban Contemporary Africana”, Supafrik will feature artwork and merchandise that re-contextualise and re-imagine traditional African aesthetics and tradition with a post-modernist eye.  In addition to the Afrotropolis fashion collection by Chinedesign, Supafrik will be stocked with unique artwork, books, music, t-shirts, shoes furniture and home-ware collected by Chinedu throughout his travels in New York, London and Paris.  Supafrik will also have social-media interactivity that will allow anybody with an internet connection to participate in some of the activities planned over the duration of the pop up shop such as the stylized photoshoot, book reading and design workshop.

Pop Up Shop runs July 14th - July31st
