xpace: External Space: We’ve Met Before by Maya Ben David

Maya Ben David’s animation, We’ve Met Before, is currently on exhibition at XPACE’s External Space hosted in the OCAD U Library Services Learning Zone until May 9.

We've Met Before by Maya Ben David; XPACE External Space February 16 to May 9, 2016

Ben David’s multiple layering and weaving of imagery and sound, with explorations into Vorarephillia, gender representation and identity that rise and recede like the tide, reinforces an experience of sinking in and out of a fantasy state.

Vore is characterized by a desire to engage in the imagined act of being swallowed or swallowing whole another in the pursuit of erotic pleasure, which is, like other more impractical sexual acts, usually imaged or played out in fantasy.

On until May 9 at the Learning Zone or visit XPACE to view online.

xpace: External Space: Despondence by Katie Kotler

Despondence by Katie Kotler; XPACE: External Space, August 3 - September 14

Katie Kotler’s digital animation, Despondence, uses playful renderings of simple forms, regular geometry, and fluttery organic shapes floating through space, to create an eye-popping visual symmetry of fun.

Kotler, a recent graduate from OCAD University Digital Future Program takes her inspiration from early computer animated technology, contemporary digital art and the usage of grids to describe spatial relationships, used throughout history to resolve a multitude of mathematical abstractions and geometric fundamentals, and is at the core of all computerized digital structures.

Curated by Adrienne Crossman.

On until September 14 at External Space in the Learning Zone or online.
