THE FACTORY–IO Lab-Steve Hudak, Andrew O’Connor and Tanya Goncalves
IO Lab is an audio visualization pilot project encouraging media artists of all levels to test and share their experimental interactive works. Audio Visualization is simply the visual representation (output) of an audio signal (input), the only IO Lab limitation is that all works must be designed to respond in real time either physically or in code. This physical computing environment explores the blurry space where analog meets digital and in the interaction expresses something unexpected. Media artists are encouraged to participate with their code live, their works interacting with each other, the space, and the audience.

THE NATHANIEL HUGHSON GALLERY-So Long and Thanks for all the debt-Claire Anderson (27 John n and King William)
Join us as we introduce Claire Anderson’s glass sculptures. A study in the chaos and serenity, Anderson’s work is a reflection on the duality of human nature.
A graduate of the Sheridan College of Art and Design, Anderson has recently returned to the area. She is currently an artist in residence at the Mississauga Living Arts Centre while she works on building her own studio in the Niagara area. We are excited to see what she will be producing in her new home.

HAMILTON ARTISTS INC-Black Mirror-Marigold Santos
BLACK MIRROR, combines new and recent work by Montreal based interdisciplinary artist, Marigold Santos. Using the black mirror as a metaphor, an 18th century tool used by landscape painters to abstract and simplify their subject matter through its reflection, Santos plays with the concept of fragmentation and reflection as it applies to self-hood. Through re-telling and re-configuring the folklore, landscapes and narratives of her past, Santos reflects on her identity, the concept of home and the hybridities between as one navigates the diaspora. When contemplating the past, we are no longer remembering, we are constructing something new, simultaneously affecting our view of the past and present. BLACK MIRROR employs this reflection and reconfiguration in the creation of personal mythos. Through both invented and re-imagined narratives, Santos invites the viewer into a space that is fantastical and foreboding, mystical and otherworldly.



CENTRE3–The Magic Show
Art, and more importantly the artist’s ability to conjure imagery and provoke imagination is not unlike that of a magician. Magic can mystify the audience and blur the line between possibility and implausibility. Artists were encouraged to consider art & magic as one and interpret the theme in a variety of ways.

    HI, I would like to get involved with the art crawl and sell my art. I’m seeing a lot of comments about just being able to come by and set up? I would really appreciate it if someone can email me with some info. I’ve been having a hard time figuring out where to go for this.
