Reva Stone Artist Talk
7:30 pm - 8:30 pm
With introduction by Kristy Trinier - artsPlace Gallery (Open to Public)

Reva Stone’s work engages with a variety of forms of digital technologies to initiate discourses about how biotechnological and robotic practices are impacting upon the very nature of being human. Recently, she has been altering and re-purposing obsolete devices that refer to the history of technology. By combining methods and genres of the past with those of the digital present, she is investigating transformations not only of the tools that we use but also how these transformations have impacted upon how we conceptualize ideas and thoughts.

YOU ARE HERE
7:30 pm - 9:30 pm
Legion Branch #3

YOU ARE HERE is a live audio/visual performance, occupying a middle ground between digital puppet show, short film, and multimedia play. Audience members are invited to take their photographs in a booth before the show, their faces then placed like masks onto blank characters. Via modelled figures possessing their likenesses, viewers are introduced into an alternate dimension — quiet, flat, empty, unsettling disassociation constructed from the backdrops of dreams. A live narrative constructs several short stories, loosely paralleling visuals on the screen. The show will feature a mix of predefined content, improvisation, and opportunities for subversion.
