Vernissage on Saturday, April 3, at 5 pm

Little Breeze is an interactive installation by Toronto artist Nina Levitt, in collaboration with artist Nicholas Stedman. A complex piece that examines the ephemeral presence of women spies during World War II, the installation features vintage suitcases embedded with audio speakers and electronics, and a large video projection cont-rolled by a computer running interactive software. Viewers are encouraged to become active par-ticipants in the gathering of (audio) information and the decoding of (video) images. Using the suitcases also temporarily transports users into an experience of migration and dislocation.
