Conceived as a walking tour, the installations and displays include video projections and interactive tools from 13 artists across seven countries and reflect the theme of humans at the heart of technology. Their aim is to:
“reconceptualise our perception of that environment, which rather than remaining a grouping of imposed structures becomes a pliable entity that can be changed through design and creation”.
Produced through a collaboration between Quartier des Spectacles Partnership, the National Film Board of Canada and MUTEK, the exhibition runs until October 18, 2015.
Making in Invisible Visible
The NFB Digital Studio and the Quartier des Spectacles Partnership are also calling for ideas for a new interactive public artwork to be exhibited in Montreal’s acclaimed cultural district, the Quartier des Spectacles, in the summer of 2017. Under the theme Making the Invisible Visible, artists are invited to explore the profound changes that are transforming our world and yet remain imperceptible. The winning artwork will be designed to travel and be adaptable to various types of public spaces in different cities around the world. Interactivity will be at the heart of the work, which will come to life when members of the public engage with it.
Making the Invisible Visible is meant to shed light on trends stemming from great cycles of change, be they political, legal, financial, economic, social, behavioural or technological. The selected project will draw inspiration from a contemporary issue that is already bringing about significant, irreversible changes in our world, but whose impact remains hidden from view because we lack the key to decode it. The deadline for submitting proposals is November 27, and the winning project will be announced in February 2016.
