Keyboard (2006)

We often forget to see the objects that surround us. The keyboard is both an object and an interface that links us to the computer, which gives us two reasons to forget it. It has been ubiquitous so long that nobody takes any notice of it anymore except when the keys start sticking. This project “Keyboard” injects a bit of resistance in the keyboard to refresh our consciousness of it.

“KEYBOARD” is a 2005 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc.,(aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. It was made possible with funding from the Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. It was made with the help of le Consulat Général de France à Québec and l’Office Franco-Québécois pour la Jeunesse during a residency at LA CHAMBRE BLANCHE.
