OCAD University will feature an immersive digital work by Daniel Iregui at 100 McCaul St. and Onsite Gallery, located at 199 Richmond St. W., the university’s flagship professional and public gallery, will be open all night for Nuit Blanche 2018.

  1. At 100 McCaul St.

    FORWARD
    Created by Daniel Iregui
    Produced by Iregular

    Curated by Linda Columbus, Programs Coordinator, Onsite Gallery
    Organized by Onsite Gallery

    FORWARD is an installation of two “tunnels” that generate infinite ways to get to a distant point on the horizon. The work alludes to the future becoming the present, and disappearing. The viewer travels through endless visual tunnels, evoking a feeling of forever propelling forward. Yet, tethered by the physical body, a conflicting sensation of remaining static in the present will remind viewers that: you are “here”. Now.

    FORWARD is a sensory experience of sight and sound that intimates that the present is always only an effervescent instant.

    Daniel Iregui (iregular.io) is a new media artist who creates interactive sculptures, spaces and architectural interventions using technology as a tool and an aesthetic. He works with the infinite and random combinations produced when an audiovisual system is open for the audience to transform it.

    In 2010 Daniel founded Iregular, an interactive content creation studio where he produces his work and commercial commissions. He was born in Bogotá, Colombia in 1981 and currently lives and works from Montréal.

For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. As students at OCAD University, we are encouraged to look beyond the final object, to explore and to develop our thinking around the context. The role of furniture as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour becomes the focal point. This exhibition presents original furniture pieces that take these broader discussions into consideration. Growth requires exploration, the goal is to plant the seeds of passion rather than ego. This annual exhibition of furniture created by the students of OCAD University is now in its eighth year and has become a valued tradition within the school’s design department.
