New York artist Don Ritter invites you walk into eight lanes of speeding traffic in this exciting sound installation. As you enter the darkened installation infrared sensors begin interactingdirectly with you. Your movements control the sounds and alter the presumed motion and bearing of the vehicles around you. Ritter expands interactive art beyond the limits of screen-based installation because he claims that "the physical experience of sittingin a chair, clicking a mouse, and entering keystrokes is not satisfying to the physical body. If interactive art is going to become an influential and cultural medium, the entire body -- and not just the index finger -- must be involved in the interactive and aesthetic experience."
Refinement of Tradition
Archambeau, recipient of the 2003 Governor General’s Award in the Visual Arts, exhibits a selection of his beautifully crafted ceramic vessels. Known as a "potter’s potter." he has been creating ceramic pieces for over 45 years and taught at the University of Manitoba for 23 years. His earthy vessels are influenced by his surrounding environment - the Canadian Shield. This strong Canadian influence is expertly combined with the Asian traditions of wood-fired ceramics that he studied in Korea and Japan. Archambeau draws detailed plans for his vessels before creating them in clay. His ability to form vessels to his pre-determined intentions is a testament to his skills as a potter.
