Imagining Space: notes from the underground, from above, from behind and within

Getting from Point A to Point B


Practical Exercises – a simple action of walking from A to B points out the complexity of that experience. Instead of diminishing, amplifying the complexity of the urban experience.

FM Buzz Sessions


A series of audiovisual compositions of wireless surveiallance feeds, found in different Montreal neighborhoods and within the vicinity of public wireless hotspots located within various bars, cafes and restaurants. The fragmented artwork is distributed across a selection of wireless hotspots, encouraging the user to drift from hotspot to hotspot to experience the totality of the work. Each fragment is unique to its hotspot, developing a relation between wireless art and its physical space-one must travel to a certain hotspot to experience a particular fragment.
