Here are images from Christine Wilks experience of IF07, including shots from a fleshmeet workshop in Nanaimo with runran and babel of The Devil’s Rope trio, a nice selection of images from The Exploding, Plastic & Inevitable redux gig, totem poles, and a large bear offering fudge.


Installation and performance group artist David Stout of Noisefold says:

I wanted to write and let you know how much Cory and I enjoyed the papers, installations and performances. I think that Interactive Futures stands out as you have all created a creative community event that is aesthetically compelling, smart and educationally accessible all at once. We appreciate the time and effort that went into facilitating our performance – in retrospect we should have presented a companion paper as there was much interest and many questions.

Photocollagen was an installation by Chris Joseph that remixed the artists and presenters of IF07 in a continuously (d)evolving chimera: a virtual identity mashup in perpetual motion. The installation was presented in the entranceway to the Open Space artist-run centre for the duration of IF07. Photographs were taken by Garth Rankin.
