Upcoming Installations

Carbon Sugar Air by Instant Places
By Instant Places
January 17, 2017 to February 28, 2017
Online installation to be public in January 2017 at http://carbon.naisa.ca/
Carbon Sugar Air is an online platform in which we generate and broadcast slowly evolving sound objects inspired by the natural forms and processes of lichen symbiosis. What fascinates us about lichens is their ability to adapt and thrive: they fashion collaborative partnerships in which photosynthesizing organisms generate sugars from atmospheric carbon dioxide to share with the substrate elements that give them physical form.

Instant Places Laura Kavanaugh and Ian Birse. Since 1997 they have used handmade hardware/ software systems to activate internet broadcasts and web-art exchanges with telematic artists worldwide, and on-location performances and generative installations across Canada, Europe, Australia, Japan, the United States, and South America. From September—December 2016 they presented new performance works across the UK, including the SonADA Festival (Aberdeen), GIO Fest (Glasgow), and collaborative performances with Italian dance improvisors Company Blu in Liverpool.
