January 17 – February 17, 2024  

InterAccess 950 Dupont St., Unit 1. Toronto ON Canada

From the discarded furnishings and neglected findings collected over a period of time, once more, once again engages with the revitalization of found objects activated through an orchestral and unorthodox play of sight and sound. Not every voice comes in flesh and blood. Homed as living entities the collection of sonic and tactile works proposes the audience to challenge how, when, and why we touch and listen to inanimate objects? When do these domestic beings become more than a tool of function? 

Read Furqan Mohamad's essay in support of the 2023 Media Arts Prize.

Featured works include:

from the iris of a faceless companion. (c. 2023, 35mm slides, carousel projector)

“Carousel slide projector screens burned 35mm film slides. Through a carousel slide projector, lost and found 35mm slides have decayed. Memories of places and faces unknown invites viewers to experience an anonymous crave of nostalgia.”

the speaker. (c. 2023, jute cord, yarn, brass, wood)

“1900’s antique spinning wheel modified with ringing chimes attached to the spinning wheel. As an interactive musical entity, visitors are encouraged to participate with “the speaker.” and play with the work through spinning the wheel like its traditional making and function.”

the harpy. (c. 2023, wood, aluminum, brass, fabric, jute cord, yarn, rubber)

“Visitors are encouraged to experiment and engage with sound through everyday findings. Initially part an antique furnishing set found on a side road, “the harpy.” is an interactive musical entity when chairs are modified with strings to generate unorthodox sounds.”

This exhibition was supported by the 2023 InterAccess Media Arts Prize.
