EMMEDIA will be presenting INFINITE LOOP, an outdoor multi-projection exhibition that focuses on formally abstract and looping videos. INFINITE LOOP will bring together a group of Calgary-based media artists to create a collaborative environment of moving light and sound in Central Memorial Park.

Facilitated by Justin Waddell and with technical assistance from media artist Joe Kelly, the works being presented were produced through an EMMEDIA workshop, which provided participating artists with free and open access to EMMEDIA’s production equipment and post-production facilities. Also, participants had the support and guidance of the workshop mentors to provide critical feedback and inspiration throughout the creative process: from initial group meetings, pre and post-production, through to the final exhibition.

The theme for EMMEDIA’s programming in 2013 is Shift. Artists were asked to consider the potential of this theme when producing work for INFINITE LOOP. Suggestions include shifts in perception, media, and form; shifts between spaces/places/states; shifts in context, syntax, or paradigms; shifts in meaning and/or understanding. Formally however, there will be an emphasis on producing seamlessly looping, abstract videos, which have the potential to shift/transform the experience of time or spaces in which they are exhibited.

INFINITE LOOP is one of many events occurring through out the province during Alberta Culture Days 2013, supported by the Government of Alberta. Alberta Culture Days is an annual celebration of our culture, heritage, artistic diversity and provincial pride. This province-wide initiative is part of Culture Days – a national movement to raise the awareness, accessibility, participation and engagement of all Canadians in the arts and cultural life of their communities.
