Gallery Space: Fuzzy Balls

Nov. 23/06 - This week in the Gallery Space:

The scene is a little quiet this week as ongoing exhibitions continue their run to the end of the month, but I've got one fascinating opening and one mysterious sale to keep you busy over the weekend.

Over at InterAccess (9 Ossington Ave.) you can join the flock and play with fuzzy balls. Ah-hem.

Flock, opens Friday evening at 7:30pm, and is an interactive installation by PLAN B (made up of Marc Fournel and Thomas Ouellet Fredericks). The piece uses immersive technologies created by the duo.

It works by asking viewers to pick up, hold, and/or position a trio of colourful fur-covered spheres within the gallery. These viewer actions then trigger a barrage of imagery and sounds that move through the space in an open-ended pattern -- like a flock of birds. Each time the viewer changes the placement, the creation is born again.

Both artists will be present for the opening. Exhibit will run until January 13th 2007.

Now, on to the sale...

Over at OCAD, it's time for their Whodunit? Mystery Art Sale.

The unique idea behind this event is that hundreds of original works by Canadian artists, creative celebrities, OCAD faculty, alumni and students is all up for sale... but you don't know who dun what.

Every piece measures 5-1/2" x 7-1/2" and is $75. The mystery creator is only revealed after the piece is bought and turned over.

Event started on the 21st and runs 'til tonight at 8pm. That's your chance to check out the pieces and decide which you might want to snag... then Saturday, the 25th, the sale is on from 9am-5pm, first come, first serve.
