We are excited to announce that two digital artists have been selected for this year’s Digital Arts Residency in Twillingate (DART) program!
Introducing Pierre LeBlanc, aka The Commission GEDEON Commission:
Pierre’s practice is best described as the contemporary digital expression of sound art. It involves accumulating sensory data and transforming it in unusual ways with the use of effects, loops and layers. His work uses images and sounds created at different periods, places and states of mind. It is essentially the creative act in reverse – a cut-up in its purest form. Pierre’s work generates from a simple act: selecting an auditory stimulus, making it audible by playing it, then building a structure around it intuitively. This stimulus can be texture, rhythm, voice or noise. The process is the product.
Introducing David Downton:
David is a multimedia video artist with a background in filmmaking, 2D and 3D animation, glitch art, and photography. David’s work involves experimenting with and discovering new visual techniques by combining old obsolete analog hardware with modern digital technology. His practice is driven by a passion for discovering new processes, dissecting every pixel and reverse-engineering things to figure out new techniques, producing digital art as a byproduct of this learning process.
