THE TRUE WEIGHT OF SOUND: ARTIST PANEL THE TRUE WEIGHT OF SOUND: ARTIST PANEL

An artist panel moderated by Lindsay MacDonald with artists Craig Fahner, Gary James Joynes, and Tasman Richardson
Location: Room ICT 516, Information and Communications Technologies building (ICT)
University of Calgary
856 Campus Place NW
Time: 1 – 2:30PM
FREE admission

When we consider the meaning behind the name Particle + Wave, we consider the tangible and intangible. In this panel discussion, we will examine a possibility in between the two: How can sound create something tangible? Does sound follow form or does form follow sound? We will investigate the transformative power of sound in sculpture, video and performance to shape aesthetic experience. Tasman Richardson, Gary James Joynes and Craig Fahner will discuss their ideas about how sound can take on weight and shape, and how sound is positioned in their work. 


TASMAN RICHARDSON TASMAN RICHARDSON

Time: Artist Talk 2:30-4PM / Screening 7-9PM
Location: Stanford Perrott Lecture Theatre (Alberta College of Art + Design) – 1407 14th Ave NW
FREE admission

Tasman Richardson’s work focuses on entropy, tele-presence, appropriation, synesthesia and JAWA editing (a style he originated in 1996), in which musical composition and narratives are created entirely from video cut ups. He is best known for his critically acclaimed solo installation Necropolis at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art which earned him a place on Bruce Mau’s list of 21st century Canadian Icons. He recently premiered his collaborative performance Hydra at Elektra 14, exhibited his Joan of Arc inspired video rose window Memorial in Paris across the street from the actual rose window, and presented a solo exhibition of lenticular printed decaying VHS portraits at Neubacher Shor Contemporary in Toronto.
