An Interactive Installation
by Donna Akrey

Show Room Gallery at NAC
Opening reception Saturday 21 February 2015 at 3pm
On display until Saturday 21 March 2015

Universal Remote is built to engage the public and encourage collaboration. The installation asks the viewers to take the controls and to consider from a closer perspective-the movement of the landscape (be it urban, suburban, industrial, abstract) and their hand in it—even if imaginary. It also revels in the chaos, beauty and possibilities of the spaces we live in.

Suggested are questions and concerns about our use of land, the displacement of the natural landscape, our obsession with borders, mass productions, the continued influx of suburban development, waste and our (at times) passive, armchair view of the world.

The word remote means both the idea of place and the idea of chance. This installation/performance will hopefully be an opportunity to explore this collaboratively with the public in St. Catharines.
