Synergy is a collaborative arts initiative, which connects a Perimeter Institute researcher(s) with a contemporary visual artist to produce and execute a site-specific work of art. This linkage provides an opportunity for both researcher and artist to share crossover methodologies, exchange abstract ideas and re-shape understandings of the scientific and creative process. The ultimate goal of this pilot program is to ignite discovery, encourage creative community dialogue and push the boundaries in which viewers perceive and relate to the world around us.
Equal Interference explores the intersection of interior and exterior space through two complementary visual perspectives. This creative collaboration reveals that how we see and interpret our surroundings is a very multi-faceted experience. Often the convergence of differing viewpoints brings a new clarity. Through this installation viewers are invited to question their understanding of space and how visual selection and omission can alter one’s assessment of the world.
