InterAccess is pleased to present a solo exhibition of works by the recipient of the 2018 InterAccess Media Arts Prize, Colin Rosati. For over twenty years, this award has been granted annually to a graduating Integrated Media student at OCAD University whose work exhibits excellence and innovation in new media practice.
In this exhibition, Colin Rosati presents a multimedia installation, Pollinating Proxies, alongside his thesis work, Hot Sugar Spoils in the Sun. Together, the works address the desire for and consumption of energy, paralleling the hummingbird’s need for nectar with humankind’s hunger for electricity.
