Indigo Griots Labyrinth…C:\\
by Helene Brousseau
At the age of the internet we have a different consciousness of the human in some respects. The world becomes a global village. What happens to the Quebec identity in this new paradigm?
With the emergence of a culture that transcends nations, local culture is questioned. What is involved? Immigration, trade, social media? French, in Quebec, represents our roots, but in a society where the pace of technological advancement is exhausting which language takes the lead? Mandarin, JAVA, Spanish, English, C + +?
In the installation C: \ \ we explore aspects of Quebec’s identity through the juxtaposition of traditional crafts to new media. Embroidery, weaving and dyeing rub up against programming language and an interactive sound environment.
