NOT SENT LETTERS is an ongoing series of epistolary detours by JEREMY TODD (an entanglement with technologies of the self, the politics of representation and the formation of cultural memory) involving online image/text posts, digital film shorts and live events. The next Not Sent Letters Set features scores by ANDREW SHORT, image projection and live performance. GUADALUPE MARTINEZ is a visual artist investigating subject-object relational dynamics within a conceptual framework. NICOLAS GONZALEZ is a musician with an extensive background in computer technology. Together they debut a performance exploring the possibilities of embodying relationship and creating dialogue through music, video and live improvisation. HEIDI MAY is an interdisciplinary artist and educator examining visual language systems of contemporary culture and relational processes of learning. Heidi will show an experimental video that attempts to capture perceptual processes within multimedia and multitasking, stemming from her ongoing online artwork Selfpost | Postself.

Michael Shumiatcher, an artist and educator in dialogue with minimalist and conceptual traditions. As hosting artist at Dockside Studio, Michael has been able to develop an installation for the event featuring 5 concrete “paintings” and a found ready-made. NIMALAN YOGANATHAN is a Montreal sound artist and musician exploring the inherent musicality of our natural and cultural environments. Improvised electronics and rhythms will harmonize with raw and processed field recordings gathered throughout Southeast Asia, generating sonic snapshots of Hindu and Buddhist temple ceremonies, bustling cities, and dense rainforests. MARK DAHL is a contemporary artist, autodidact and writer who lives and works in Vancouver. He will be giving a talk on Google Earth and the horizon. GRAHAM MEISNER is a composer/video maker working in Vancouver. He debuts the digital video short 500 Words On The Parthenon Frieze, exploring the relationship between an artwork and its fragmented, reconfigured audio/visual representations. The work also addresses the correlation between theoretical discourse and art phenomena as subject matter.
