25 April – 6 June 2008
Kinetica presented the solo work of Montreal-based media artist Eric Raymond, which opened the two-part exhibition Schematic: New Media Art from Canada. The exhibition featured two of Raymond’s most notable installations that explored the dynamic between technology and our natural world.
In Linescape, motorized monitors revealed a serene outdoor horizon piece by piece, while Scribes had tiny robots drawing a digital landscape of wireless signals picked up in the gallery.
Set against the dramatic location of Canada House, Raymond’s pieces both complemented and interfered with the sense of history and tradition embodied in the space.
