VERNISSAGE AND EXHIBITION OF MEDIA ARTS FOR FAMILIES
Saturday June 10, 2017 | From 2 PM to 4 PM
@ STUDIO XX – 4001, Berri (corner of Duluth) space 201
Studio XX invites you to discover all the projects produced in the workshops of Media art for families, activities that took place from January to May 2017!
Guided by Montreal-based artists, the Media Art for Families initiative brings together children and their parents to have fun programming and designing with electronic technologies. These creative workshops offered children and adults a chance to discover the back end of media art. Together with the invited artists, they learned and shared their knowledge based on a principles of equality in participation; everyone has skills and can be creative. These workshops were designed to bring families together in a playful environment where they can learn from some of artists Studio XX supports, and explore their own creative process in the electronic arts milieu.
Join us on Saturday, June 10th and discover all the artworks produced in each of the workshops, including:
BIOART WITH SARAH CHOUKAH, WHITEFEATHER AND TRISTAN MATHESON
Participants have built basic electronic circuits using the live and colourful unicellular organism Physarum polycephalum to build and document a maze as part of a collective bioart project.
LIGHT WITH JOSÉE BROUILLARD
Participants have explored the phenomena affecting the propagation of light through a circuit where a light-emitting diode is switched on and modulated. They have created a DIY project where light is the main actor.
MUSÉE DES ONDES WITH ÉMILIE MOUCHOUS
At the Musée des Ondes Berliner, participants have visited the current exhibition Montreal in Space. They have manipulated radios in order to generate Morse code and then communicate with our cell phones…
3D PRINTER WITH SIMON GREFFARD AND RAPHAËL DEMERS – Fab Lab du PEC
Participants have been invited to explore the different possibilities for 3D printing by subverting the primary function of a 3D printer, so instead of producing a 3D plastic object, they have produced something two-dimensional.
KINETIC ART WITH ALICE JARRY
With the aid of motors, Arduinos and various reflective materials, participants have been led to make small kinetic sculptures and explore the light and sound potential of these objects
VIDEO INSTALLATION WITH OLIVIA MCGILCHRIST
In this workshop, participants have experimented with video mapping on 3D shapes and multi-screen video installations with poetry evocative of the theme of water.
