The Loop Collective and Arraymusic co-present an informal screening of recent digital videos by Colin Clark. These durational videos quietly sound the cinematic technicity of the sea, trees, plants, animals, and people.
This event continues our series of screenings in 2016 celebrating the Loop Collective's 20th anniversary.
Admission is free!
Colin Clark is a video artist, composer, and design researcher at OCAD University’s Inclusive Design Research Centre. Since 2011, he has produced a growing body of digital videos that explore the relationships between technology, nature, and time, often incorporating custom-made image and sound processing techniques. His music has been performed by Arraymusic, the neither/nor collective, the Draperies, and his own ensembles, Lions and Fleischmop. Colin's soundtracks for experimental films by Izabella Pruska-Oldenhof and R. Bruce Elder have been shown at film festivals internationally. He has curated exhibitions with the Loop Collective featuring the work of Chris Welsby, Michael Snow, John Cage, and others. Colin also develops Flocking and Aconite, web-based creative software tools for sound synthesis and video processing used by artists and musicians around the world.
The Loop Collective is a group of independent media artists formed in 1996 to develop a public platform integrating experimental film and video with other art forms. We program and produce works for presentation through exhibitions and events in both traditional and non-traditional spaces. Our mission is to explore the roots of experimental film and video by creating a dialogue with other art media. We strive to promote experimental film and video for critical engagement by cultivating relations among different artistic communities. Loop has presented gallery installations, screenings, and artist talks by renowned figures including Michael Snow, Carl Brown, Chris Welsby, Christian Lebrat, Double Negative Collective, Richard Kerr, R. Bruce Elder, Carolee Schneemann, and Jósef Robakowski. Programmes of films by Loop members have screened at venues including The National Film Board of Canada (Toronto), Cinema Parallele (Montreal), WNDX Festival of Moving Image (Winnipeg), NASCAD (Halifax), TRUCK Gallery (Calgary), Cineworks (Vancouver), Factory Media Center (Hamilton), Leeds International Film Festival (UK), and the 2010 Canadian Retrospective at EXiS Festival (Seoul).
