Xerocks by Cecile Babiole (also part of NXNE)


Dates:
Thu Jun 05, 2014 00:00 - Sun Jul 13, 2014

Location:
Toronto, Canada

Thurs - Fri 1-4pm, Sat 10am-3pm, + special hours on July 13 TBA @ the NAISA Space, 601 Christie St #252, FREE

Xerocks is an interactive installation designed to turn two copying machines into musical instruments. Press a button on the machine and that will trigger a copying cycle, simultaneously generating a sequence of sounds. By (mis)appropriating and thereby alienating this familiar piece of office equipment, Xerocks ironically morphs an imaging apparatus into a sound production device. Xerocks is presented in partnership with the Consulate General of France in Toronto and is sponsored by Direct Office Solutions.
