Sensory Sonnambulists: Cave Entertainment for an A/V People at ARPRIM

With his immersive audio-visual installation New Troglodytes, Toronto-based artist Philippe Blanchard has transformed Arprim into a techno-primordial cave, one that both hearkens to our prehistoric past and our techno-bricolage present. Visually, it’s a little like entering a big-pixeled and brightly-coloured video game from the 1980s. The entire space is wrapped in screen-printed paper in...

De la nature aux Territoires

Je n’ai jamais été une grande passionnée des sciences, préférant de loin les disciplines artistiques au moindre reportage scientifique, et si on ne m’avait pas fortement recommandé de choisir la chimie et la physique en cinquième secondaire, je n’aurais probablement jamais fait la connaissance du tableau périodique et de ses éléments.
