The 6th Annual InterAccess Emerging Artists Exhibition
InterAccess is pleased to present Press Play an energetic showcase of dynamic new works in electronic media. The exhibit features six emerging artists who playfully intervene both old and new technologies in order to expose the cultural conditions that shape modern life. Exploring the sometimes humourous, sometimes dystopic theatre of the everyday, these artists investigate how our values and perceptions are infused not only in our behaviours but also in the technologies that we create.

InterAccess is pleased to present KODAMA, an interactive sound installation by Japanese artist Hisako K. Yamakawa that imagines "voice" as a physical object by illustrating how it floats through space. In the exhibition, Hisako has created a virtual forest inhabited by tree fairies that capture and play with the viewer's voice. KODAMA is presented in association with the 19th Annual Images Festival, April 13-22, 2006. For more information about the festival please visit http://www.imagesfestival.com.

Controller: Artists Crack the Game Code―Myfanwy Ashmore, Tasman Richardson, Anita Fontaine + Yumi-co., Prize Budget for Boys, RSG (Alexander Galloway)
InterAccess is pleased to present Controller: Artists Crack the Game Code, an exhibit featuring the work of five artists that modify video games by exploiting glitches in the code, adding or removing elements in the game and isolating specific visual components.

Pulse―Adam Brandejs, Amy Learmonth + Brendan Wypich, Pearl Chen, Rob King and Ryan Pierce. Curated by Angella Mackey
Six artists sit on a moving pulse. The pulse is a travelling wave of information and experiences that change daily. The pulse encourages us to adapt to our environment as quickly as it changes – as quickly as it offers an upgraded tool. Pulse groups together five projects from six young artists with an innate technological awareness. Their practice is informed by their childhood experiences of a constantly changing technological environment reflected in the proliferation of personal computers, portable music devices and home VCRs.

While the traditional practice of cartography is restricted to interpreting our physical and visible surroundings, electronic artists have long been exploring the notion of mapping alternate realities – physical and virtual, analog and digital. As an aesthetic medium, it provides direction and navigation beyond our immediate surroundings. Within the realm of the virtual, the possibilities for interpretation and classification are endless.
