Installation: Morgan Evans-Weiler's Structures: Glass
Aug
1
to Aug 8

Installation: Morgan Evans-Weiler's Structures: Glass

‘Structures: Glass’ is the careful exploration of the architecture of glass as a material. The installation uses the resonant properties of six different sized panes of glass to create a sonic and visual environment representative of the structure of the transparent substance. Sonically, the installation explores a limitless combination of textural and pitch possibilities; vibrating sources are subject to an ongoing process of change and excitation. Visually, the sonic substance of the glass becomes transformed into images as an attempt to create an environment out of a material. 

Artist talk Friday August 5 at 8pm. Open hours during evening events b/w Aug.1-8. Daytime open hours tba. Otherwise open by appointment.

Apparitions - 16mm Expanded Cinema Performance by Alex MacKenzie

Inspired by early stereo imaging and the clash and collusion of socioeconomic forces, this suite of works seeks to dismantle cinematic codes while foregrounding projector and light as sculpture. Using colour gels, masking, lens interference and projector movement in tandem with an exploration of binocular disparity, perspective, patterning and the surface itself, APPARITIONS explores the transitional space between image and abstraction, nature and culture.
