Welcome to the Post-Power Play icebreaker! Join us at SPIN Gallery and play with visiting directors, local artists, and audiences in one BIG collaborative animation. The Pika Pika lightning Doodle Project is a spontaneous interactive project. using light sources such as cell phones, iPods, bike lights as drawing tools, Tochka coordinates improv doodling sessions that result in a unique creative project that we can all share. Taking a series of long exposures and playing them back throughout the performance, the almost instant video illustrates wild and beautiful images of just about anything participants can think of (from barking dogs to flying pigs).
Bringing people together in new and imaginative ways, the act of making the animation (the performance) becomes the artwork itself. The project aims to join people from different fields around the globe in order to promote curiosity, enjoyment and friendship while creating works of art.
Please join us for this special event in celebration of Canadian film and video makers. Enjoy free Asian snacks, music and DJs. Bar sales will raise funds for Reel Asian.
