David Rokeby & Lewis Kaye:Through the Vanishing Point


Dates:
Sun May 29, 2011 17:00 - Fri Jul 08, 2011

Location:
Berlin, Germany

European premiere of a multi-media view into Coach House, Marshall
McLuhan’s legendary academic headquarters, by leading Canadian digital  artists David Rokeby and Lewis Kaye as part of the 'McLuhan in Europe 2011: Re-Touching McLuhan' Centenary celebrations in Berlin, Germany.
Canadian artists David Rokeby and Lewis Kaye were originally commissioned by CONTACT Festival 2010 (Canada) to create site-responsive works at the Coach House, drawing inspiration from McLuhan’s work.
In two separate but complementary works, Rokeby and Kaye visually and aurally construct McLuhan’s persona. The exhibition illuminates the
intellectual spirit of the great media prophet. As the framework for
their work the artists drew from McLuhan’s book Through the Vanishing Point: Space in Poetry and Painting (coauthored by Harley Parker), 1968, which explores the way electronic media fragments the homogenous experience of space.
David Rokeby’s multi screen projection features images sourced from
archival photographs and video recordings of McLuhan’s Monday night
seminars, personal life, television appearances and public lectures.
Lewis Kaye’s six channel sound composition uses archival recordings of
the seminars – audience murmurs, discussions as well as interviews to
evoke McLuhan and the history and aurality of the atmosphere at the
Coach House. (photo credit: Toni Hafkenschied)
