Move your body in new art gallery exhibit
Gallery guests will play a part in the latest installation at the Kelowna Art Gallery.
David Rokeby's Very Nervous System is a sound piece activated by guest's body movements.
When people enter the interactive area of the gallery space (delineated by a spot-lit section on the floor) they will soon realize that sounds coming from two speakers in the room are created by their own movements. Guests create sounds by moving their bodies - a term Rokeby calls a “transforming mirror" - leaving each visitor with their own unique experience.
Davie Rokeby is a Toronto-based artist who has been a leading-edge new-media artist for three decades. He was winner of the Governor General’s Award in Visual and Media Arts in 2002.
David Rokeby: Very Nervous System will be on display from January 4 to April 6.
