Variations on Broken Lines


Nuit Blanche Toronto (2022)


Variations on Broken Lines is a site-specific performative installation that explores notions of the liminal in our current digital culture. The installation is located at the North York Civic Center. A constellation of video performances, moving-image, and documentation archives are projected simultaneously onto different surfaces throughout space. This installation takes the form of an event that offers generative and transformative experiences in which the audience participates in a ritual of becoming, thereby adding new layers and meanings to the work. The felt experience may call into question the space between the virtual and real, corporeal and technological, and the consideration of diaspora as an ongoing dwelling beyond borders, time, and space.
