‘anyWare’ is a distributed sculpture that includes three identical objects that can be located in three different locations, anywhere in the world. The ‘anyWare’ sculptures are connected to the Internet, and physically mirror each other (i.e. if a blue light lights up on one sculpture, that same blue will light up on all of the sculptures).
As the collection of technologies producing moving images multiplies at an incredible rate, Artengine wondered about the supposed ascent of video. Has one of the defining mediums of the twentieth century truly come to dominate the twenty-first or did something else happen? While the word video is unavoidable and ubiquitous has it also become hollow and meaningless? It is everywhere and so perhaps nowhere?
Yolande Laroche’s “Journal d’Enfance” was co-presented with Debasser as part of their amazing multi-sensory series Pique. This was the premiere of this intimate sonic experience mixing childhood memories and fantastical sonic experiments.
Artengine produced 7 Maker Faires over the course of a decade. We brought the first Maker Faire to Canada in 2010 and built up a community and audience around this fun celebration of making (in all it’s forms).
The Ludic Fields sculptures are innovative artworks designed to encourage new interactions in public space. They are equipped with sensors to track movement and translate that movement into lighting effects.
This symposium brings together a group of cutting edge artists working with new technologies to discuss and share their experiences, their practices and their perspectives on algorithms, artificial intelligence and machine learning.
This April Artengine begins a great new collaboration with the Youth Services Bureau (YSB), the West-End Youth Motivators (WE-YM) and CHUO 89.1FM to deliver a new program in the Michele Heights neighbourhood in the west end of Ottawa.
The emerging field of bioART includes a diverse range of practices from the lab, the wilderness, and cities, which use cells, microbes, plants, and bodies (human and otherwise) in the production of art.
In honor of the launch of our new website, Artengine held Canada’s first ever YouTube Battle! Eight teams will battle it out to become Ottawa’s hippest nerds or nerdiest hipsters – the choice of title is theirs!
This unique exhibition brings 5 newly created works, and a special hockey themed screening, to a whole new environment for contemporary art – the sports bar. These works, commissioned by Artengine, will be presented for 3 weeks at locations in the Elgin Street area.
