Light as a Feather – Reception @ onetenpark

Artists Susan Gold, Kewy Janisse and Collette Broeders held a special evening celebrating Light as a Feather and our first ATC Trading Card event. Check out the latest installation at onetenpark.com and read the article by the Lance here.

About Light as a Feather:
Light as a Feather, a sci art collaboration in the Windows of one ten park: a working space showcasing the scientific work of Kewy Janisse with Collette Broeders and Susan Gold
March 7 extended through April 15

The evolution of iridescent plumage in pheasant-like birds may seem an unlikely subject for an art collaboration, but from our first meeting on the subject, the artists were attracted to the electronic microscope images, the spectacle and labile nature of iridescence, the concepts of reflection and refraction, and the phenomenon of sexual selection affecting colouration. We started our conversation by looking at the basic structure of the feather and additional vocabulary emerged: Nanostructure. Barbules. Melanosomes.

Questions also emerged as the process proceeded. What are we looking at when we look at an image produced by an electronic microscope? A nuanced photographic- looking image made up of shades of gray, but not produced with light. How is the resulting image influenced by the electronic microscope process and by the method of collection of the sample object? How does iridescent colour occur? A phenomenon of light refraction and the positioning of melanosomes.

From those beginning discussions a transformation of concept and material began. The metaphors suggested by the vocabulary were a kind of refraction of meaning. Perhaps another refraction occurs when concept collides with material. The material takes over the process for a time. We reflect on what is created.
So the Light as a Feather collaboration is somewhat about the science, but largely it has come to be about the operations of science and the operations of art making and their representations.

*Very special thanks to Dr. Christine Madliger, Dr. Stephen Pender and to Dr. Bill Baylis, President of Canada South Science City, for delivering such thoughtful and engaging speeches from both a philosophic and scientific perspective. We are grateful and honoured to have their presence at this event.
