Polyscreening 2: Design and structuring of multi-channel projections

D. Farley, 2013

Aaron Pollard is a multidisciplinary artist from Montreal who has been producing and presenting video art and multimedia performances since the early 1990s. His works have been shown in Canada and abroad. He studied at the Emily Carr University of Art and Design and Concordia University, where he completed an MFA. He is the co-founder of 2boys.tv as well as researcher and head of OBORO’s multimedia sector.


Native to Victoria, British-Colombia, Allison Moore studied interdisciplinary art and video at Concordia University where she received in 2005 a Bachelor’s degree with honours in Fine Arts. Active in the artistic community in Canada and abroad for the past ten years, she has participated in numerous exhibitions, residencies, workshops and events. Her work explores in a playful and systemic manner the fascinating universe of the dematerialization and the decontextualization of the image and the body as much on a conceptual level than on a technological one.


After obtaining a master’s degree from the School of Visual and Media Arts at UQÀM, Nelly-Eve Rajotte, a multidisciplinary artist, investigates the relationship to space and explores the arborescence of physical sensations and psychological states through sound and image. She borrows from cinematographic strategies of editing and staging effects that not only transform, but also aestheticize reality. The sound environment doubles the sensitive potential of the work by denying or exalting the discourse of the image.
