SEASONS at SFU-Goldcorp Centre for the Arts: September 19 – October 16, 2015

SEASONS is part of a special exhibition of immersive art organized as part of the celebration for SFU’s 50th Anniversary.  The exhibit, Generations, features the work of several SFU artists from the School of Interactive Art + Technology and the School for Contemporary Art.  Curators Thecla Schiphorst, Kate Hennessy and Gabriela Aceves-Sepúlveda state:

Generations engages notions of materiality, embodiment, subjectivity, and memory as they are expressed in contemporary generative art practice. The works use computation to endow machines with agency for the autonomous production of outcomes that are generally outside of the control of their makers. As a play on programming iterations, life cycles, artificial intelligence, and creative possibilities, these works generate spaces for affective engagement between machine and information, subject and object, individual and avatar, and signal and noise. Landscapes, bodies, movements, sounds, and materials are transformed by their interactions with code and its generative potential.

Check out these works in the lobby area of the Wong Experimental Theatre at SFU’s Goldcorp Centre for the ArtsGenerations is also included as part of the audience tours for the Hidden Pasts, Digital Futures Festival of Immersive Arts, which includes works by Jeffrey Shaw, Sarah Kenderdine, Robert Lepage, and Stan Douglas.
