    Channel Surf

    Between Two Signals ~ ~ ~ // ~ ~ ~ A Durational Event

    Curated by The Department of Biological Flow 

    Collaborative "anarchive performance" at Gallery 101 

    6-9pm June 27, 2015 

    Food provided for the event by Manomin Native Foods. Please RSVP for the event by email to director@g101.ca 

    From June 14-27, 2015, over thirty artists, thinkers, movers, activists and healers are coming together for a creative and durational movement-experiment. Channel Surf is a paddling arts residency, floating school and ambulant atelier that canoes, cooks, camps and creates for 200km up the Rideau Canal waterway from Kingston to Ottawa. 

    Each day the participants will rigorously travel, create and co-communicate by assuming the metaphor of canal as information channel. The participants will act as "data packets" negotiating this passage - almost like floating between two channels on an old analogue TV set and perceiving both images simultaneously. 

    Please join us to celebrate and participate in the welcome of the "data packets" to Ottawa. Artists, viewers, participants and feasters will collaboratively and dynamically create and recreate the ways we engage the experimental and embodied "data" metaphor as an ecological engagement of "anarchiving" the event at Gallery 101. 

    At the celebration, we will be sharing a supper provided by Manomin Native Food Services, an Aboriginal owned Business. Manomin has been serving the Ottawa area since 1984, bringing aboriginal foods to the masses. They offer catering and food booth services at Aboriginal Festivals and Pow wows in Canada and USA.
