Instant Places is a series of installation performances that work with locally gathered audio and video to transform the host gallery into an immersive space. The raw materials of the particular place and time are transformed through a process of improvisation using live sampling, microphone and mixer feedback, voice, contact pickups and effects. The video work deals with the transformation of recently shot and edited footage, using the real-time manipulation tools VDMX, Isadora, and MAX/Jitter.

Booth is an exploration of the time it takes to summarize a life or capture the spirit of an era. The exhibition includes Pierre Tremblay's Portraits in a Sentence and Skawennati Tricia Fragnito's 80 Minutes, 80 Movies, 80s Music, two artworks that use the minute-long video as a framework for self-expression. In each case, the artist has invited friends and acquaintances to use clearly established parameters – the single sentence, the song fragment, the rule of one – to fashion their contribution to the project.

The line that separates us from the machines we create has become blurred. Our self-proclaiming notions of intelligence, awareness, identity, agency, and embodiment are no longer attributed solely to the human body. And instead of identity, we possess characteristics of connectivity that are most notably manifested through Embodied Conversational Agents.
