Volatile Prophecies

Volatile Prophecies [Exhibition]

This five-week solo exhibition is dedicated to a single piece from within Berlin-based media artist, writer and designer Patricia Reed’s multifaceted practice. Volatile Prophesies is a 3D animation and sound work that will be installed as a large-scale projection, with its depth and vastness extending the sense of the room beyond its limits and pushing it into unstable states. The exhibition is presented in collaboration with the Department of Visual Arts at the University of Ottawa, with special thanks to Jinny Yu.
