i8u and CHiKA will be taking part in an artist residency at ETC which will enable them to put the finishing touches on their new work entitled “Traverse”.
i8u | CHiKA
In today’s connected world we have many new methods of collaborating,
and many technical and artistic problems that arise in the process.
These two artists bring this chasm into focus and explore the
possibilities given by these constraints.
This project intersects i8u’s minimal yet powerful sound sculptures and
CHiKA’s geometric minimalist patterns to create a work that expresses
the examination and limitations of itself.
France Jobin aka i8u is a sound/installation/web artist whose work has been released on ROOM40 (AUS), nvo (AU) and recently, a collaboration with Tomas Phillips on ATAK (JP). She has worked with Goem, Martin Tétreault and David Kristian.
CHiKA is a live media artist working in the international VJ and experimental music scene. Her performances vary from minimalist geometric patterns to unique compositions overflowing with a variety of forms and color.
