Scotiabank Nuit Blanche: Technological Displacement

The CFC Media Lab’s interactive installations featured in Technological Displacement at The Bata Shoe Museum will explore acoustic, phonetic, and visual/physical spaces as a collision between old and new environments using digital technologies. Projects range from taking the ethereal phonetic text message and converting it into an object to a visual exploration of deep space using the whole body as the navigational instrument on a screen.

On the eve of the centenary anniversary of Marshall McLuhan’s life, the father of communication studies, we celebrate his work and influence on screen-based media. Inspired by his theories about the global village, as they relate to environments that are navigated, and tensions that exists between old and new technologies.
