    Celestial bodies appear as molecular structures with planetary shapes - retreating, expanding and in motion.

    Cosmos is conceived as a contemporary extension of comic book narratives of the popular Amar Chitra Katha comic book series.

    The popular myth of the race around the universe between he and his brother Kartikeya (where Ganesh simply circles his mother to achieve that goal) is illustrated here.

    This marks the first time my 2D collage is converted into 3D space using Monster Mash and DeepMotion programs.

    These inflated photo sculptures are injected with my stilted movements via AI body tracking. The result is a playful motion study composed of colourful collaged characters that reveal accidental expressions.

    Having moved from Toronto 2 years ago, this piece collects some of my personal memories of this site, the neighbourhood where I used to live and share a studio at Pix Films.

    These are some flashes of memories: emotional phone calls, an accident I witnessed, delicious food that no longer exist due to gentrification, heartbreaks and bike rides and queer weddings I danced to and drag queen wigs I picked up along these streets that are no more.

    Memories merge, collapse and interrupt each other, but they are, for now, still remaining as fragile ephemeral monuments anchored from an invisible thread to the gravel.

    A bike ride through Toronto's waterfront was filmed with a 360 camera, then depth maps were extracted from the footage, and a sequence of drawings generated as the final result.

    Reflection, Obsession, Artifice and Self was sculpted entirely in virtual reality. This sculpture garden is meant to have us reflect on the human experience and how it intersects with the digital world. The work is an assembly of parts from several different sculptures - reordered to break and recontextualize the meanings they previously held. The figure at the center, representing the individual, floats above a reflecting pool and contemplates the shifting forms of the surrounding sculptures invoking ideas of power dynamics, creativity, control, fetishes, nature, emotion, the body, alienation, society, art and artifice.

    The artist extracted shapes and symbols of interest from a collection of unfinished embroidery work from her teaching practice. Each motif, then, exists in the digital space in a new context that the viewer is invited to define. By navigating through and around this monument, new patterns emerge in relation to its environment. The artist lends this agency to the viewers to determine new possibilities for these otherwise neglected, unfinished embroidery motifs to exist.

    Madi’s filmmaking practice centres the materiality of analog film, as well as the optical machinery used for the production and projection of images. She often experiments within this medium as she translates her work into the digital realm.

    The work was inspired by Madi’s curiosity for marbles aswel as mushrooms. The (Other) Cat’s Eye Marble consists of a spherical marble form and a morel fungus encased in gold. These two shapes reference the dichotomy between the power struggles amongst humans, their cultural geographies, and their use of natural resources.

    As these objects collide, the preciousness of a gem is formed. Do we forget ethical consumption when faced with aesthetic beauty?

    Everyone has been in the house too long. Now that the quarantine restrictions are loosened, the kids want to have fun and party with a tough crowd. Their babysitter is stir-crazy too.

    The distortions possible in 3D permit me to explore desire and human contradictions free of constraints. Like many monuments, it celebrates freedom.
