DEMO2 Vanessa Mardirossian : The Culture of Color: An Ecoliteracy of Textile Design

February 2021

What are the ecological implications of textile design? This question, which guides Vanessa Mardirossian's research-creation process, allows us to reflect on a critical approach to materiality through the design of wearable biomaterials. Our second DEMO focuses on the exhibition "Culture of Color: An Ecoliteracy of Textile Design" which presents Mardirossian's tinctorial exploration. For her, documenting the process was central. This written, visual and tactile memory work allows her to refine her thinking and her production through action. In the laboratory, experimental trial and error is part of her methodology.

DEMO1 Olivia Mc Gilchrist

February 2021

As a first DEMO, Hexagram presents Olivia Mc Gilchrist’s [Hexagram student member, Concordia University] research-creation residency, which will take place in two residencies at Le Petit Théâtre du Vieux-Noranda. Last February, she participated in the co-creation of a performative and interactive experience that links the world of video games and the performing arts. During that first phase, Olivia contributed to the development of the critical and conceptual framework of this laboratory, taking place in the framework of research-creation activities led by Jean-Ambroise Vesac [Hexagram co-investigator, Université du Québec en Abitibi-Témiscamingue] and digital artist. The multidisciplinary team collaborating on this project consists of researchers, professional artists, students, technicians, as well as the French studio THEORIZ.

The documentation below focuses on this first part of the co-creation process. Stay tuned for the further developments of this DEMO!

Share and disseminate your research and creations through DEMO

Share and disseminate your research and creations through DEMO

Hexagram is inviting all co-investigators and student members of the network to apply for support towards outreach and dissemination of their research-creation activities.

What is the DEMO program?
DEMO is the interuniversity research-creation residency program, one of the main programs put in place by Hexagram to support and promote collaboration in research, through short stays in research groups and labs or collaborating organizations in spaces of practice affiliated with Hexagram.

About this call
The current context has had an impact on the program of residencies planned with our partner institutions, therefore Hexagram wishes to support co-investigators and student members to communicate and interact with the scientific community and the public about the work they have carried out throughout 2020 and 2021, their results, their approach, in order to foster interest and a better understanding of research-creation. This is an outreach support initiative for activities planned and/or for the presentation of research-creation; the program does not entail creation grants.
