The opening night of FUTURETENSE at ARTSPACE proved to be an evening of excitement.  The theme of the artspace membership sourced exhibit focuses on technology and media within our daily lives. The art pieces on display serve as a reminder that the concept of media is not a new concept as it develops and adapts with our society.

Through mediums such as photography, mixed audio and visual components, paint, and everyday objects the contributing artists provide viewers with a glimpse into the nature of humanity and our reliance on technology. Not only do these pieces express our need to be plugged into technology, they also promote ARTSPACE’s new media lab which provides cameras, computers, and many other pieces of multimedia equipment to members.

The exhibit showcases pieces by Lyall Brownlee, Benjamin Hackman, Beth McCubbin, Patrick Moore, Michael Poulton, and Steppenwill. The exhibit is open until October 27, 2012, and I highly suggest that you check it out. In fact, I suggest you stop by more than once… try to see if any of the art pieces are changed or altered at all during the exhibit.

Pursuing a career in Environmental Law, Sara is studying Environment and Resource Studies (with an emphasis in Policy and Law), and is loving every minute of it. Sara first got involved with the Arthur covering Peterborough’s hip and vibrant arts scene, and through these articles, has fallen in love with this city’s welcoming community. A crazy cat lady, tea junky, Potterhead and Whovian, this tree-hugger is happiest frolicking in the woods–especially in Jackson Park and the LEC Drumlin. Sara is also a proud chocoholic, and Montreal bagel binge-eater, so if you want to get on her good side, come bearing gifts of fair-trade dark chocolate and those glorious “everything” Montreal bagels.
