Metamorphosis

(Work by computational media design artist, Oksana Kryzhanivska)

 

Part of Beakerhead, Curated by Marjan Eggermont in HK INCUBATOR

 

Opening Reception,Thursday, Sept 7 from 5 to 8pm.

 

Artist in Attendance.

 

 

Oksana Kryzhanivska is an interdisciplinary artist, who explores the potential to enhance human perception with computationally-augmented experience of sculpture. By sharing the technologically intensified tactile sensation her hybrid art forms speak about the capacity to think with the body. These interactive sculptures communicate metaphors of the body: they evoke in the audience images of the reconfigured human body, its internal organs and raw flesh. These flesh-like forms communicate with sensory metaphors through tactile sensing, electronic response, and mixed-reality environments. In this inquiry Oksana explores technologically-enhanced fabrication methods – composing hybrid materials, simulating virtual textures with electronics, and building machinery and digital tools.

 

Curator, Marjan Eggermont is the former Associate Dean (Student Affairs) and a senior instructor in The Schulich School of Engineering at the University of Calgary, teaching in the area of engineering design and communication. She is also an artist who exhibits nationally and internationally. Marjan teaches graphics, communication, technology and design history, biomimicry, and information visualization. She is currently finishing her PhD in Computational Media Design. She co-founded and designs bio-inspired design journal Zygote Quarterly (zqjournal.org). ZQ was a finalist in 2012, 2013, 2014 and 2015 for a Digital Magazine Award in the Science and Technology category. Marjan joined the American Society of Engineering Education (ASEE) in 2004 and has recently completed a three-year term on the ASEE Board. She was also named one of Calgary’s 20 Most Influential Artists by the Calgary Artwalk Society in 2000.

Gordon Hatt, director at the time of the Cambridge Galleries, organized a major exhibition of her work, which traveled nationally to public galleries including the Doris McCarthy Gallery, University of Toronto, Scarborough and Southern Alberta Art Gallery.  Leach also had two major paintings selected by the curators for the 2005, important international exhibition, Extreme Abstraction, at the Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo. Her work is included in many private and public collections including the Art gallery of Ontario, Toronto, Hart House, University of Toronto and the Donovan Collection, University of Toronto and was also included in the book, “Abstract Painting in Canada” by Roald Nasgaard, (who also purchased one of her paintings in 2013).

Murmuration

As Part of Beakerhead

 

September 8th to the 24th in the HK INCUBATOR Project Space

 

Curated by Marjan Eggermont

 

Fireflies, chameleons, and starlings are the inspiration for this exhibition. Works by Bon Adriel Aseniero and Sheelagh Carpendale (computer scientist), Roxane Fallah and Mahdiar Ghaffarianhoseini (architects) explores data and bio-inspiration in sculptural and digital form."

 

The exploration into bio-inspired design or ‘nature’s networks’ for data visualization is a recent one.  Large amounts of data in some cases are not just like living systems: they are living systems.  In What Technology Wants Kevin Kelly describes the move from a “clockwork logic to a complex ‘bio-logic’ that is capable of developing thinking, living systems that our complex world demands.” We examined how bioinspired design/bionics/biomimicry can be used to expand the way we think about visualizations: Does it merely apply to visual representations? Can it expand the way we think about interactions? Are there generalizations and guidelines that can be created or is useful advice obtainable from this explorations?
