FUTURE TELEPHONE: Artist talk by Michael McCormack

Join us for the final talk by our 2016/17 Local Artist in Residence Michael McCormack!

During his six-month residency McCormack developed sound and electronics for his current work titled FUTURE TELEPHONE. The project stems from the realization of his recently completed projects, BEACON, STATION, SIGNAL and FIELD, all of which considered contemporary relationships of how we relate to sight, sound, and distance through correspondence using archaic or historical media. FUTURE TELEPHONE extends this exploration into the interactive media of the telephone as a potential tool for diplomacy within Prince Edward Island, a province that for many reasons has been greatly affected by delayed communications due to geographical isolation or harsh weather conditions.

The artist talk will take place within the exhibition Why are we saving All these artist publications + Other Galleries stuffs?” At Dalhousie University Art Gallery, on Tuesday April 12th at 7pm.
