OUR PREFERRED SUPPLIERS:


TELEPHONE GAME – CARLIN BROWN

My computer is my best friend, my confidant, and my personal diary. My computer knows all of my secrets. It shares and distorts information as it passes from one network to the next. This installation turns the computer into a player in the game of Telephone.

EJECT – CHRISTOPHER DONOVAN

EJECT uses archaic technology, reanimated to a shell of it’s previous use. 

About Christopher Donovan:

Christopher Donovan is a Calgary based media artist who’s work takes inspiration from the past and perceived visions of the future. 


GRADUATION – MAEVE ORLADY

Graduation is a series of grad portraits from the 1943 Western Canada High School yearbook with animations to bring out the psychology and perceived personality of each face.  I chose these particular portraits to convey a common human experience. The structure, emotion, and architecture of each face is exaggerated and amplified to bring out the individual in a moment in time. Like the experience of a memory or dream, I intentionally shape the visual experience to be familiar yet distorted.

My practice is a series of meditations on human memory, human connection, and the psychological lenses at play to shift and alter perspective both as an artist and as a viewer. Through themes of memory, nostalgia and the sacred objects and experiences of everyday life, I aim to open a space in the viewer’s psyche for thoughtful response suspending real time and place long enough for a human pondering of existence, transience and relativity. With Graduation, I aspire to access fragments of the personal and collective memory of the innocence and unknowing expectation of an imagined future. The futures of each of these portraits has been determined in real time but not in this moment. Each work creates a natural liminal space of time for the viewer to establish connectivity.

About Maeve Orlady:

Maeve Orlady is a Calgary-based artist who will graduate from the Alberta College of Art and Design in the spring of 2015. Maeve makes video installations, sculpture and drawings informed by her interest in the associations and distortions of memory, place and time. Her landscape, found object and video work is thoughtful, methodical, and magical.
