A new exhibition that explores the potential of creative technology and its role in shaping our shared futures.
Explore a diverse variety of interactive and immersive work from local and international artists in a 3,500-ft gallery installation at Bentall Centre.
Indigenous artists include Casey Koyczan, who presents Tadǫetła ; Walk In A Circle.
IM4 Lab, which is dedicated to immersive learning and opportunities for an Indigenized tech ecosystem, will also premiere their virtual production films, and share augmented reality (AR) work.
Signals also features the installation premieres of video games made in British Columbia that have now reached the world stage, including Fae Farm by Phoenix Labs, presented on the Nintendo Switch.
Homeworld 3 by Blackbird Interactive will be available in a unique installation demo for fans of real-time strategy games.
AI and biosensors are new technologies that offer promising possibilities and raise questions about ethics, privacy and the loss of connection humans have with the natural world. In Entanglement, AI shows us how it interprets and sees our forests as it dreams and hallucinates.
SinkinSync allows audiences to interact through their brainwaves using EEG sensors and artistic interpretations of thoughts. And Ruby Singh asks us to consider what we’re losing and giving up as we become disconnected from nature.
Book your Signals Experience Ticket and venture into a unique interactive and immersive experience for 1 hour and 45 mins where you will explore 19 projects in a 3,500 square foot gallery space.
*NOTE: This exhibition contains sensitive content. Some interactive exhibits have user limits and timed in a first-come-first-served basis.
