Chris Myhr installation: Fathoms
June 1, 6PM, Freedom Way, Multimedia Studio
The final event of the Noiseborder Festival 2018 is an installation of Chris Myhr’s audiovisual composition Fathoms: the Weight of Smoke. This work features video footage of debris clouds hovering above the Atlantic seafloor, together with abstracted motion-graphic animation of sea-faring artifacts (i.e. mariners’ pipes). Sound design comprised of ambient recordings from the spaces within various containers recovered from these underwater sites (i.e. ceramic vessels, bottles, artillery shells). Part of a body of work entitled Point-Line-Intersection which examines the interrelationships between culture and natural water systems. Produced through support from the Canada Council.
