Outer Self, Fashion Art Toronto, 2010

Site specific intermedia installation as part of “The Dressing Room Project” at Fashion Art Toronto, alternative arts and fashion festival.

As one entered the small room light flickered and reflected across the space. A stop motion animation filled the fragmented mirror with gradating white and blue patterned light. Audible sounds from headphones suspended from a geometric structure mounted overhead lead visitors into an alternate reality. The accompanying soundscape produced in collaboration with sound designer Estelle Hebert moved along paced with the kinetic light. Low lying organic surfaces were inviting places to sit and take in this constructed experience

Materials: plywood, printed paper, steel, salvaged wood, zip ties, adhesive vinyl, mirror glass, carpet, video, projector, audio, headphones
