On February 19, 2016, in anticipation of the 2017 iteration of the festival, we will be presenting PARTICLE + WAVE 2.5, a one-night performance and fundraiser at Festival Hall. Taking place from 7:00-11:00 pm, we will be featuring media art performances including a new performance by Halifax artist, Lisa Lipton. Fresh from her shortlist nomination for the 2015 Sobey Art Award, Lipton will be using PARTICLE + WAVE as a platform to debut her new audio-visual work, “Agonist” in collaboration with local media artist Carl Spencer. In addition, we open with Yankee Yankee (Whitney Ota) playing a live soundtrack to Aran Wilkinson-Blanc’s film “TransfiX”, and we end off the night with the super fun musical stylings of Sleepy Panther (Rita McKeough & Richard Brown).
That’s not all! Awesome door prizes will be given out throughout the night, as well as a silent auction featuring very unique items and experiences will be up for bids! This is definitely an evening not to be missed!

TheÂ FELTÂ BOOKÂ is a collaborative publication featuring a collection of home remedies created by 90+ invited artists. It is inspired by the structure of Fluxus scores, YouTube tutorials and eHow articles. The works submitted may be as simple as a single sentence, while others include images, video, and web-based interactions. Each artist is asked to take on the IfNf mission statement: to explore “new ways of feeling, and ways of feeling new.” Remedies will be released individually as a year-long weekly email subscription service, and then compiled into a permanent online publication in 2016.Â
