The Ottawa Art Gallery

June 4, 2015 – September 20, 2015

Opening reception on June 4, 5:30 pm

“The interactive video installation Terrors of the Breakfast Table, by Hamilton-based artist Tyler Tekatch, invites viewers to alter the story through the use of their breath. In the centre of the gallery space is a table upon which sits a wooden, pyramid-shaped object. Visitors are encouraged to sit in the chair placed in front of the table and blow into this sculptural device, while discovering the interactions at their desired pace. The subtle technologies sense the viewer’s breath, triggering thoughtful interactive elements in the video’s narrative and visuals. Such elements include a dream montage, the pace of a scene, ambient 8-channel surround sound and the brightness of images.” Read more here.
