Exhibition: "BRIDGE" by Naomi Dodds
InterAccess is pleased to present BRIDGE, an interactive installation by Naomi Dodds. Dodds is the recipient of the 2016 InterAccess Media Arts Prize. This prize, which InterAccess has sponsored for nearly twenty years, is awarded to a graduating Integrated Media student at OCAD University whose work exhibits innovation in new media practice. With its ambitious carbon-steel fabrication and kinetic components, Dodds is a deserving recipient of the 2016 award.
BRIDGE is an interactive installation that examines the construction and completion of a custom-built drawbridge. The installation offers a comprehensive exploration into the connections between mental and physical structures and examines how these structures contradict their functional conventions. BRIDGE transmits the notions of geographical and technological displacement, heavily embedded undertones that give way for a formal analysis of the changes in social structures associated with technological determination. However, the simple idea of the spectacle is apparent. Through it’s disarticulated state, BRIDGE aligns itself with the theatricality of an illusion, which in turn resonates with the personification of the performance of the machine.
