- Kathryn Blair – Logical Conclusion II
Dear Prospective Algorithm,
You are invited to join our introductory exploration of Logic, so that you may gain experience working with the kind of conundrums that Humans may set to you when you are deployed as an Algorithm in the Wild, and are asked to determine whether a Human ought to be hired, fired, or sentenced to life in prison. We have developed puzzles to test your ability to value a well-constructed chain of logic over the truth of any individual Proposition. On completion of the puzzles, you will receive notification of whether you are eligible to be certified in Level I Algorithmic Logic. We wish you good luck and have every faith in your success.
- Wayne Burns – Curtains
Curtains uses sculpture and video to create an intimate dance party for the viewer. Inspired by lives of six Toronto art makers who maintain Joe Jobs to support their art, we’re reminded that refuge from the banal towards the ecstatic comes by wading through the garbage of one’s life.
It Screams When You Let The Air Out: a performance installation about intimacy.
- NIUBOI – Antiquation
Antiquation explores where our devices go when they become obsolete. Both an installation and a live performance; we encourage you to participate in NIUBOI’s experiments in obsolescence.
- Pinky Swear (Felix Tuba & Bryn Francis) – An Assumptous Entity Lives on the Second Floor
The Assumptous Entity is a creature who lives and haunts many of us, spreading assumptions and perpetuating societal norms in one’s ear. They usually find you in the halls of elementary school. We have caught this one and have him chained up for everyone’s safety but we can’t seem to get him to shut up.
Ever think that you can’t wear something or do something because of your gender, race or sexuality? That’s the Entity.
