ARTASIA at Factory Media Centre presents: CITY VOICES
Amy McIntosh , Aaron Hutchinson, Andrew O'Connor
Culture for Kids in the Arts’ 2010/2011 ARTASIA project explored children’s ideas about neighbourhood transformation. Building on these voices and visions, City Voices is an artistic investigation of this theme of city building through listening, using interviews, sound, and video of a city in flux.
This exhibition was envisioned as a platform for recent post secondary school graduates to collaborate and gain real-world curatorial experience to further develop their career in the arts.
Activity: CITY VOICES is multimedia installation that consists of multiple projections and an atmospheric soundscape. The stimulating sonic and visual space created will invite a participatory audience to interact with the piece through means of a touch screen iPad.

Steven Laurie (www.stevenlaurie.com)
Steven Laurie's sculptural work consists of reconstituted car parts which can be activated to emit exhaust and industrial noise. These works contain visual references to blue-collar trades, masculinity, pastime activity, consumerism, and horseplay. The act of burning rubber is reinvented as artistic gesture and imprint on James St North. Laurie's art employs traditions of performance art, kinetic sculpture and mark-making to consider how actions/processes such as burning rubber, engine revving, and stereo thumping can be seen as communicating a sense of subcultural kinship and territoriality.
Artist bio: Steven Laurie is a visual artist from Oshawa ON who is now based in Toronto ON. He currently serves on the Board of Directors for Station Gallery, Whitby, ON. His work has been featured at the Jack Shainman Gallery, NY, for MOCCA 900 at the Toronto International Art Fair, and in the exhibition Speed Demon at Museum London.

Excerpts from SNJóFLóð/RéTTIR (AVALANCE/CORRAL)
Mixed Plastic and polypropylene installation
The activity of tying one cable tie to another is at the core of this project, and the reward is in finding suggestions of real and imagined environments. An avalanche transforms a landscape into a chaotic and abstracted version of a particular place; a corral contains, encompasses, and encloses.
