Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

So after a great deal of work on both my project partner Alex Heidbuechel and myself, we will be attending Scotiabank Nuit Blanche with an interesting video installation work. The work is based on conceptions of self as related to our interactions with others. It uses a fun game created by surrealists known as the exquisite corpse as an avenue to explain our idea, although we have remediated the game through use of media technologies such as video and projections. The event will be ephemeral and no lasting tangible work is created, however to use our own theory and to borrow from that of Marcel Duchamp the viewer creates our work through their interactions with it.

We owe much to the myriad of people who made this project possible.

First and foremost I would like to thank Scotiabank for sponsoring the even.
Sarah you have been instrumental in making this all happen, as well the city of Toronto has done much to help the independent projects and without that support who knows where many of us would be.
We would like to thank the Niagara Artist Company, and In the Soil for their continued support.
We would like to thank organizations such as the Ontario Arts Counsel, and the Trillium Foundation for their support of artist throughout ontario, and Carfac for artist across Canada.
Thank you to the Rotary Club for the use of your events tent.
Marinko Jareb of The Disco Gallery.
I would like to personally thank artist Duncan McDonald for his continued support.
Additionally, thank you Brock University and the Visual Arts department.
We would like to thank our friends and family for their support.

And to anyone who we have forgot to mention, you have not been forgotten. For without all of you this project would not have been possible.

We hope to see you out on October 2nd, 2010.
