Ring of Blue

Residency
September 21 to November 7, 2006

In partnership with Fondation Daniel Langlois pour l'art, la science et la technologie, Research and Experimentation Residencies in Montreal for Professional Artists from Emerging Countries or Regions

Ring of Blue creates a portable interactive exhibition for the Catapult Arts Caravan in rural India. It includes documentary history, people’s geography and cultural expression in articulating water relations in their environment. Work 1 features an animated bucket in a dry well. Work 2, activated by visitors’ presence, combines a live video from an aquarium with text concerning water-related issues in the exhibition area. Work 3 is an interactive map-installation that uses everyday objects associated with water and imbues them with the power to summon video or audio extracts.
