artsPlace Gallery (950 8 Ave, Canmore AB)

Reva has been recently honoured with The University of Manitoba 2017 Distinguished Alumni Award Recipient for Professional Achievement. “I knew then I was making art that had crossed a border”. Read more here. Reva will add so much depth to our media art conference we are proud that she will be in Canmore with us.

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.

Ms. Stone has received many awards, including the 2015 Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Arts and an honorable mention from Life 5.0, Art & Artificial Life International Competition, Fundación Telefónica, Madrid, Spain. She has exhibited widely in Canada, the US and Europe, has presented at symposia and has been published in journals such as Second Nature: the International Journal of Creative Media.
