This event is an exhibition of work by James Kirkpatrick from London, Ontario featuring his interactive sound sculptures. On September 22nd, don’t miss his artist talk and reception at 6pm and on September 23rd his performance as Thesis Sahib at 7:30 pm.
Mila Petkovic in Metro wrote “Kirkpatrick’s bright and highly detailed work takes its inspiration from science fiction, cartoons and the secret worlds of video games.” Kirkpatrick’s sound sculptures are created by circuit-bending, or re-purposing, consumer electronics toys as well as by transforming their visual appearance with his playful and colourful style. These sculptures invite group play and collaboration to create beats, melodies and scratchy textures out of discarded electronic toys.
