In the Charles Perrault fairy tale Peau d'Ane, a young princess, whose family riches are dependent on a gold-excreting donkey, orders impossible wedding gifts from her father to avoid marrying him: three dresses made of immaterial materials. The first is to be made of the "sky" and should be as light and airy as the clouds. The second is to be made of "moonbeams" and should reflect the same lyrical intensity as the moon at night. The third, and last, is to be made of "sunlight" and should be as blinding and warm as the sun above.

Ed Osborn's Harvester requires that visitors not touch the piece. For most people familiar with electronic art, the hesitation to actively experiment with installations has long been diminished and is in fact the most common denominator of the medium. Osborn's piece is part of a trend that explores how media art that is seemingly low-tech and code-free can be as significant as work that is visibly complex in both construction and meaning.

100(11) Instruction Works is a series of daily performances taking place during the 2004 7a*11d International Performance Art Festival. The instructive projects create an opportunity to explore the many architectures of Toronto – physical, virtual and mental. A wireless camera will be in use during performances to experiment with the notion of interfacing urban space with a performance piece, and in turn, with a global population. 100(11) Instruction Works is multidisciplinary artist kanarinka's continuing exploration of invisible things – spaces, frameworks and contexts.

Feedback provides and elicits response. Whether it is received from humans or machines, feedback is cyclical – looping over time, encouraging great debate and action. It is also a response that is subjective; but while we may conceive of mechanical and computational feedback as predetermined and therefore predictable, this exhibition hopes to demonstrate that it can be otherwise.

(six) Degrees―Natalie Conliffe, James Mitchison, Aaron Phelan and Josh Raskin, Georgia Dunne, Alex Kurina and Stephane Beaudet
Curated by Heather Corcoran and Erin Peck
At some point every person has unexpectedly discovered a link to another with whom he or she previously had no relationship, an experience that has come to be known as "six degrees of separation." There is a concrete cultural notion that we are somehow all connected, a kind of underlying network governing our communities and influencing our attachments.

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.
