Swarm. Minotaur. Multiverse.  Dark Matter. Chronophage. No, these are not the latest Axe body scents for men, they’re the titles to the recently ended lineup of SATfest, a series of short films presented every spring at the SAT’s (Société des Arts Technologiques). It all happens at the Satosphere, a huge dome that forms a […]

Rouge Mekong

Every projection I have seen on the 360-dome at la Société des arts Technologiques, has been technically impressive, but I’ve always felt that the art is trying to catch up to the tool it’s displayed on, as though the technology of the dome is almost too much for the artists who use it.

Remembering our digital leftovers: on Media and Machines


Last Thursday was the vernissage for the Media and Machines show at the Canadian Centre for Architecture (CCA). The subtitle of the exhibit says it all: it’s the Archaeology of the digital.

Here’s what I read before […]

Inside the artist’s mind: Robyn Moody

If you want to kill 3 birds with one stone, go see Robyn Moody’s installation at the Phi Centre, in Old Montreal. Why? Because it’s a co-production of three excellent organizations who know what they’re doing: the Phi Centre itself, the BIAN, and DHC/ART.

My trip into space: Continuum

I’m always discovering my city. Sometimes this is my way of admitting that I still get lost in Montreal on a regular basis (and I did again this time).  But today it’s also my way of saying that I can’t believe it took me so long to go to the Rio Tinto Alcan Planetarium at Espace pour […]

Seeing the big picture

This Saturday, I dragged my 10-year old to an exhibition at the Belgo building. For those of you who don’t know it, the Belgo building contains floor after floor of the blood, sweat and inspiration of various artists. Art galleries galore, and you can wander in and out to your heart’s content. Take your […]
