InterAccess is extending its' extraordinarily successful 10th Annual Emerging Artists Exhibition until mid-September to give everyone 11 more chances to not have an excuse for not seeing it.
"Jo SiMalaya Alcampo's installation, Singing Plants Reconstruct Memory, incorporates plants, electronics, film/video and a soundtrack based around traditional Philippine chanting. The resulting interactive sculpture presents plants as silent witnesses and examines the deterioration of memory through trauma. In Cave Rave, Philippe Blanchard explores connections between technology and the human fascination with fire and energy by bestowing the most ubiquitous of screensavers with a new purpose. Christina Kostoff's kinetic installation, Daydream, engages the viewer's perceptive capacity and encourages them to consider their physical and mental environments. With Cymatic Imprints, Donna Legault presents a multi-sensory installation that allows the individual to see and explore the physical nature of sound. Moving away from her more traditional portraiture practice, Laura Payne presents Can You Tell Me?, a video sculpture that explores the format of portraiture and challenges its supposedly inherent capacity for authentic representation."
