anyWare
By Jane Tingley, Cindy Poremba and Marius Kintel
January 17 to April 1, 2019, Open 8 am to 4 pm everyday except Tuesdays and Wednesdays
NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Ave, South River

anyWare is a distributed media sculpture comprised of two identical objects and a third virtual online portal that are individually connected to the Internet and physically mirror each other.

The anyWare sculptures are art objects that telematically connect different locations in the world and enable distal physical communication. The objects simultaneously respond to people who interact directly with them, as well as allow them to interact with each other through the sculptures.

Structuring these interactions are a number of games and puzzles for people to play/solve, either individually or collaboratively. The objects transform in the experience of exploration (either with one person or potentially with many people) and in so doing reveal different levels of interactivity and aesthetic experience.

The creation and production of anyWare would not be possible without the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, Ontario Arts Council and The Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada (SSHRC).
NAISARadio Cafe
January 3 – March 31, 2019, Thursday to Sunday, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm
NAISA North Media Arts Centre, 106 Ottawa Ave, South River

Journey in your mind to a place ‘off the beaten track’ and explore an eclectic range of radio and sound art from around the world while sitting at one of NAISA’s Café tables. NAISARadio Café is a curated listening experience delivered through radio receivers on café tables. The broadcast will consist of works made by artists from Asia, Europe, the middle East, and across Canada who have responded to NAISA's 2019 programming theme of Off the Beat(en) Track. The collection will also be available online on NAISA's 24/7 radio art stream NAISA Radio and on NAISA's Soundcloud album collection called Deep Wireless 14.

pay by donation

Our mobile devices track our movements, allowing corporations to predict our behavior. The work Immobile Device provides reason to put our phones down and allow our senses to meander down a different path, leading us away from the conventions of high technology and towards new conceptions of connectedness. After exploring Immobile Device during Family Day weekend, Josh Gumiela will lead you on an Electromagnetic Sound Hunt to uncover electromagnetic sounds that exist in many other common electronic devices.
