TIDAL TRACES | Canada | English | Toronto Reference Library
Tidal Traces by Nancy Lee and Emmalena Fredriksson is a 360-video VR dance piece that places viewers in the centre of the performance. In it, three characters explore a new and uncertain world—moving between tranquility and ominousness, beauty and peril. Entangled in this tension, the viewer becomes the fourth character, directly composing the dance through their gaze.
DANCING POLAR BEAR | Canada | English | Toronto Reference Library
Inuit sculptor and visual artist Derrald Taylor creates a snow sculpture of the North’s most iconic animals, a polar bear. Filmed on the frozen Arctic Ocean, under the northern lights, this piece represents both the eternal permanence of the North, as well as the transience and fragility of our delicate environment. While the creation of the sculpture can be experienced in Virtual Reality, the natural destruction of the piece is a view reserved only for those in the community of Tuktoyaktuk.
FISH EYES | Canada | English | Toronto Reference Library
Multi-instrumentalist/artist Casey Koyczan creates a sculptural installation on the shore of Marian Lake. The installation is constructed not only to serve as a form of shelter in the future for local hunting, fishing, berry picking, and cookouts, but also serves as a stage, as Koyczan performs his brand of live-looping electro-alternative music, interacting with the surrounding environment to create a kaleidoscopic experience influenced by the landscape.
