more-than-human Artists' Talk Panel Discussion

Thursday, February 02 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. EST 

more-than-human Artists' Talk Panel Discussion Part 1 | OCAD University

Rasa Smite & Raitis Smits, Grace Grothaus, Suzanne Morrissette and Lindsey french introduce their artworks and engage in a discussion about their practice and its multiple intersections. Moderated by Jane Tingley.

more-than-human presents media artworks at the intersection of art, science, Indigenous worldviews, and technology that speculatively and poetically use multimodal storytelling as a vehicle for interpreting, mattering, and embodying more-than-human ecologies. The artworks in this exhibition aim to critically and emotionally engage with the important work of decentering the human and rethinking the perspective that sees nature as a lifeless resource for exploitation. Many of the artworks use technological and scientific tools as entry points for witnessing and interacting with these more-than-human worlds, as they help visualize phenomena beyond human sensory perception while nevertheless situating us within them. Combined, the artworks in the show weave a story that tells a tale of symbiosis, intersections, and more-than-human relationality. They incorporate scientific, philosophical, and Indigenous perspectives to create an experiential tapestry that asks the viewer to reconsider, reorient, and rethink relationships with the more-than-human.

Introduction of Artwork - Discussion Q&A

Sun Eaters is a series of sculptures that sense the invisible bioelectric waves present in all living beings and translate it into visible light for us to see. Grace Grothaus is a transdisciplinary artist interested in generating space for future-facing reflection regarding human agency enacted through the constructed world. Through her research-driven installations, sculptures, photographs, videos and performances, she explores the complex web of ideas relating to the pressing ecological crisis of biodiversity loss resulting from climate change. She hopes to address questions such as how can we reshape our relationships with each other and collectively awaken to a role of intra and inter-species respect, mutualism, and stewardship?
