BIO
kanarinka, a.k.a. Catherine D’Ignazio, is an artist and educator. Her artwork is participatory and distributed – a single project might take place online, in the street and in a gallery, and involve multiple audiences participating in different ways for different reasons. Her practice is collaborative even when she says it’s not. Her artwork has been exhibited at the ICA Boston, Eyebeam, MASSMoCA, and the Western Front among other locations.

Watch the video of Unmarked Package


UNMARKED PACKAGE: A Case for Feeling Insecure.

In May 2007, the Institute for Infinitely Small Things toted hundreds
of unmarked packages (marked "UNMARKED PACKAGE") around Chicago sites
including the South Side, Daley
Plaza, Millennium Park, Little Village, Douglas Park and Hyde Park.

At each site, the Institute of Infinitely Small Things interviewed
members of the public about anxiety, insecurity and fear in public
spaces and produced a video research report with the results.

Watch it now on YouTube.

It takes 154,000 breaths to evacuate Boston


NEW PROJECT LAUNCH
----------------------------------------------------------------------

It takes 154,000 breaths to evacuate Boston

www.evacuateboston.com
A networked running project by kanarinka.

How do you measure fear in a society obsessed with security and
preparedness?

This Spring, kanarinka is running the entire evacuation route system
in Boston, MA, and measuring its distance in breaths. While running,
she amplifies and broadcasts each breath into the public space around
her body.

The project is an attempt to measure our post-9/11 collective fear in
the individual breaths that it takes to traverse these new
geographies of insecurity.

The $827,500 Boston emergency evacuation system was installed in 2006
to demonstrate the city's preparedness for evacuating people in
snowstorms, hurricanes, infrastructure failures, fires and/or
terrorist attacks.

It takes 154,000 breaths to evacuate Boston consists of a series of
running performances in public space (2007), a web podcast of breaths
(2007), and a gallery installation of the archive of breaths (2008).
The performances and website are presented by iKatun for the 2007
Boston Cyberarts Festival. The project will be on view:

What: Boston Cyberarts Festival Gala
When: Fri, May 4, 2007, 6:30pm
Where: Hotel @ MIT, 20 Sidney Street, Cambridge, MA
