In Message in a Bottle, artists create hybrid arrangements out of materials that have been thoughtfully scavenged, collected and culled. These materials carry information and transmit messages as they traverse space, criss-cross time and shift context. Industrial, natural and domestic ephemera take on new forms, which reveal each artist’s considered regeneration of the material world.

Featuring artists: Erika Defreitas, Qendrim Hoti (OCAD U MFA alum), Ginette Legaré (OCAD U Professor), Laura Moore, Jennifer Murphy and Jacob Whibley (OCAD U alum).

Curated by Kristiina Lahde

SUBTLE TECHNOLOGIES is pleased to present WE++, a festival inquiring into cultural heritage, ancestry, hybrid identities, and virtual environments. We++ consists of three interrelated events – a panel conversation, an interactive architectural scale new media installation and a digitally oriented workshop series. The program playfully examines virtual place-making in game interfaces and genetic databases as a means for decolonization and reconciliation through disparate modes of (re)presentation.
