STATION | Michael McCormack

 

24 February – 31 March 2017

Artist talk and launch- 7pm, 24 February 2017

 

STATION considers the affects of acute listening in the isolated and conditioned environments on the individual, and the impact of this action on their surrounding environments. Activating sounds, structures, images and light through radio, STATION reflects on the situation of the radio operator, and the situation of contemporary culture as information gatherers and distributors. As we continue to become increasingly active as communicators and information archivists, how has this shaped our social and political landscape today? At what point do we lose footing where information becomes unrecognizable, unidentifiable or impossible to translate? What happens to lost information, or those of us who hang onto it? When does a skill-set become folklore, and what are the risks and consequences?

Causerie d’artiste et vernissage – 19 h le 25 février 2017

 

STATION se penche sur l’effet de l’écoute active sur l’individu qui se trouve au sein d’un environnement isolé et conditionné, ainsi que l’impact de cette action sur ses environs immédiats. En activant des sons, des structures, des images et de la lumière par l’entremise de la radio, STATION pondère la situation de l’opérateur radio et la situation de la culture contemporaine en ce qui a trait à la récolte et à la distribution de l’information. Notre progression active en tant qu’archivistes de communications et d’informations a-t-elle un effet sur le paysage social et politique d’aujourd’hui? À quel point perdons-nous pied quand les informations deviennent méconnaissables, ou impossibles à identifier ou à traduire? Qu’arrive-t-il aux informations que l’on perd ou à ceux parmi nous qui s’y accrochent? À quel moment un ensemble de compétences fait-il partie du folklore, et quels risques et conséquences entraîne-t-il?
