Exhibition essay written by Letticia Cosbert Miller.
DO COMPUTERS WORRY YOU, Matt Nish-Lapidus’ current body of work, continues his exploration into the poetics, material, and politics of computation. Custom circuit boards, networks, and artist-written software come together with industrial and domestic materials, found texts, and bespoke algorithms imagining a more expressive, personal, and poetic computer.
Simon Fuh's Greenlight: Carlaw is a multi-channel sound installation inspired by a group of teens that were caught squatting in a vacant house for sale in Toronto’s east end. Unfolding over the course of an hour, the work imagines a fictional tenant living below the teens, placing viewers in the position of that sonic “voyeur” beneath them, as their movements, conversations, and activities are all heard as though passing through the floor.
This exhibition is generously supported by the Canada Council of the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council and Collision Gallery and Studios.
