The New Brunswick Laboratory of Imaginary Media Research + Design
Free Workshop on Imaginary Media, 3PM - 5PM

The New Brunswick Laboratory of Imaginary Media Research + Design will host an experimental workshop exploring the role of fancy in our contemporary media ecology. NBLIMR invites everyone—students, artists, non-artists, performers, workers, concerned citizens, entrepreneurs, and even teenagers—to come and join the team.

We will do some thinking together about classic imaginary media (e.g. the holodeck, cyberspace, the singularity) and we will collaboratively develop some of our own alternatives. Part seminar, part drawing jam, all real!

The New Brunswick Laboratory of Imaginary Media Research + Design was founded by Dr. Henry Adam Svec, a scholar and inventor who is currently the University of New Brunswick’s Media Artist in Residence. For more information about his work, visit www.henryadamsvec.ca

Make it Round
Steve deBruyn

"With this exhibition, I intend to create sculptures and paintings from found wood, rejected paint and other objects found around the locality of Sackville, NB. Each exhibition I make is unique and carries within it the history of the materials used. Colour and form take precedence over representation and an urgency to create within a given timeline becomes a driving force. The process becomes the focal point and the finished product a remnant of these actions, left behind to be discovered/discarded yet again."
