anyWare

  • Vernissage : 30 June 2018, 17:00 - 22:00
  • Exposition: 1 - 4 July 2018

The inaugural exhibition on June 30th, 2018, of anyWare will connect three Canadian galleries; Artengine (Ottawa), Eastern Bloc (Montréal), and Electric Perfume (Toronto).

anyWare is an Internet of Things distributed sculpture comprised of three identical objects that are individually connected to the Internet and physically mirror each other.

The anyWare sculptures are art objects that telematically connect three different locations in the world and enable distal physical communication.  The objects simultaneously respond to people who interact directly with them, as well as allow them to interact with each other through the sculptures. Structuring these interactions are a number of games and puzzles for people to play/solve, either individually or collaboratively. The objects transform in the experience of exploration (either with one person or potentially with many people) and in so doing reveal different levels of interactivity and aesthetic experience.
