I compile an array of GIFs from film and TV that have held significant impact and inform my recent media work. My interest in visual sampling, loops, fragmentation, and memory comes together in this program through an oscillating mosaic of moving images.
GIF Roulette will feature a mixed media sound and text digital installation, and an artist talk.
Digital Installation • Nov 1 - 19
Catch the digital installation of GIF Roulette by Howie Tsui, any time online on this page between Nov 1 - 19.
Artist Talk • Nov 15, 7 - 8 PM
Tickets for the live stream artist talk are free but must be acquired through our ticketing platform.
About Canadian Spotlight
Every year, Reel Asian chooses to spotlight a Canadian filmmaker to showcase local talent and activate their work as part of festival programming, with screenings of the artist’s choice and deep-dive artist talks. This year, with the festival’s move to a digital platform, we are taking the opportunity to introduce innovative, non-traditional, experiential programming made with digital presentation and engagement in mind. Through the Canadian Spotlight, we hope to amplify artistic voices, support sustained engagement with interdisciplinary creative practices, and introduce new audiences to dynamic, contemporary media work.
