Exhibition - Colour: what do you mean by that?

Promo corrected Colour What Do you Mean by That

Colour: What Do You Mean By That?  This cross-disciplinary exhibition presents work by artists, designers and scientists using or investigating colour phenomena, qualities, and meanings. What is colour: frequency, wavelength, energy… resonance, material, sensation... perception, illusion, association... emotive embodied experience? The question opens up connections between diverse understandings and ways of knowing.

artists: Laura Bisaillon | Julia Buntaine | Chris Burke | Emily Carriere | Nicole Clouston | Jayanne English | David Griffin | Karine Guyon | Sara Hartland-Rowe| Mark-David Hosale, James Madsen & Rob Allison | Kathy Kranias | Marie Lannoo | Michelle Letarte | Art Lucs | Hameeda Mahmoud | Jessica Massard | Giuseppe Morano | Francis Muscat | Irma Osadsa | Frances Patella | Robert Quance | Jordan Shaw | Matthew Thomas | Dori Vanderheyden

co-sponsored by: the Colour Research Society of Canada and Propeller Gallery

curatorial team: Doreen Balabanoff, Robin Kingsburgh, Janet Read & Judith Tinkl

Exhibition location: Propeller Gallery | 30 Abell Street, Toronto

Exhibition Dates & Times: Mar 7-25; Wed - Sat: 12 - 6pm, Sun: 12 - 5pm

Opening Reception: Thursday Mar 8, 6:30-9:30pm

Lecture: Sun Mar 18, 1:30pm

Art-Science in the development of ICECUBE Volumetric LED Displays

by Mark-David Hosale & Ron Allison (York University), and James Madsen (University of Wisconsin-River Falls)

A conversation between artist, scientist and engineer about visualization and colour, in the conception and development of the ICECUBE LED Display [ILDm^3]. The ICECUBE LED Display [ILDm^3] is a cubic-meter (1/1000th scale) model of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, a cubic-kilometer telescope made of ice just below the surface at the South Pole. While scientifically precise, the display uses art methodologies as an optimal means for expressing imperceptible astrophysical events as sound, light and colour in the domain of the human sensorium. The 45 minute talk will be followed by Q&A period.

International Colour Day Curators’ Talk & Social: Wed Mar 21, 7-9pm

Artist Talks: Sun Mar 25, 2-4pm

 

additional programming: Primary Dye Workshops with Tanya Love

Blue: a natural indigo dye workshop | March 10, 10-5pm

Red: plant sources of colour | April 14, 10-1pm

Yellow: plant sources of colour | May 26, 10-1pm

The ICECUBE LED Display is a cubic meter volumetric display that sits low to the ground. The base is constructed of wood and provides support for 86 acrylic rods, each with 60 LED’s, totalling over 5000 LED’s. The piece also makes sounds, which are the sonification of light events. 

Mark-David Hosale is a computational artist and composer work has been exhibited internationally at venues such as SIGGRAPH Art Gallery (2005), International Symposium on Electronic Art (ISEA2006), BlikOpener Festival, Delft, The Netherlands (2010), the Dutch Electronic Art Festival (DEAF2012), Toronto’s Nuit Blanche (2012), Art Souterrain, Montréal (2013), and a Collateral event at the Venice Biennale (2015). His interdisciplinary practice that is often built on collaborations with architects, scientists, and other artists in the field of computational arts, resulting in the creation of interactive and immersive installation artworks and performances that explore the boundaries between the virtual and the physical world.

James Madsen is the chair of the physics department at the University of Wisconsin–River Falls and an associate director of the IceCube Neutrino Observatory, where he leads the education and outreach team. He has deployed five times to Antarctica, and presented science talks on five continents. He enjoys providing opportunities to participate in astrophysics research that range from one-time talks for general audiences to extended research experiences for teachers and students, including field deployments at the South Pole.

Robert Allison is a Professor at the Centre for Vision Research and in the departnemnt of Electrical Engineering and Computer Science at York University. My main work involves basic and applied research on stereoscopic depth perception and virtual reality. I study how the brain, or a machine, can reconstruct a three-dimensional percept of the world around us from the two-dimensional images on the retinas and how we use this information to move about and interact with our environment. I am also interested in the measurement and analysis of eye movements and the applications of this technology.

Artist, Mark-David Hosale (York University, Toronto, Canada), and Physicist, James Madsen (University of Wisconsin, River-Falls, USA) have been working regularly with each other since 2012 and have realized several projects that explores the visualization and sonification of data sets collected at the IceCube Neutrino Observatory. Rob Allison (York University, Toronto, Canada) joined the collaboration in 2015.

IES Webinars

Each month the IES presents a monthly live webinar with topics we believe will be beneficial to our membership and the public at large. We are excited with this new program and we hope that you will join us

WEBINAR SCHEDULE

Museum Lighting and Lighting for Fine Art
February 15th 12:00 PM EST
The paradox of museum lighting is that the same spectral energy used to illuminate museum displays also causes fragile materials like pigment, fabric, wood, and metal to deteriorate. This presentation will provide insight into how to utilize IES’s new Recommended Practice for Museum Lighting (RP-30-17) to deal with the conundrum of preserving light sensitive materials while providing a dynamic visitor experience. This presentation will be richly illustrated showing how to employ light so museums may be better seen, understood and experienced. Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Layers of Light Residential & Hospitality
March 15th 12:00 PM EDT
Lighting plays a critical role in fostering safety, security, and a sense of welcome to residential and hospitality projects, especially after the sun goes down. Learn how historical and psychological context can inform layered and adaptable lighting design solutions for lobbies, reception areas, restaurants, and residential living spaces that result in happier humans and more dramatic architecture. Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Design for Color and Illumination
April 19th 12:00 PM EDT
When developing a lighting design, lighting specifiers determine the lamp and fixture combination that best suits the design’s requirements based on many factors. While some considerations are largely technical, such as power consumption, the amount of light generated, and how light is distributed, one consideration is both technical and artistic and can be approached in a number of ways. Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).

Tunable White Controls
May 17th 12:00 PM EDT
This webinar will take participants through the different types of light spectrum control, discuss the color tuning abilities of tunable white fixtures and their design challenges and conclude with how you can reduce risk and meet your client’s sequence of operations requirements on color tuning projects.

At the end of this course, participants will be able to:

  1. Describe the fundamental categories of spectrum control with LEDs.
  2. Analyze the color tuning features of tunable white fixtures.
  3. Identify challenges with tunable white.
  4. Evaluate the feasibility of meeting a sequence of operations with various fixture types.

Participants to this webinar are eligible for one (1) IES Continuing Education Unit (CEU).
