Saturday April 21st - Discussion + Film Screening
- we will begin the evening by showing a digital version of our recent publication and using this as a jumping off point for a conversation with the audience about media: how it was shaped, and how it shaped us.
- we will then take a short break, and afterwards screen John Carpenter’s classic film critique of American consumer culture: THEY LIVE
Tuesday April 24th - Bonfire + Artist Talk
- our host, Heidi, is going to be purging several of her personal effects, including all of her own journals. we invite all audience members to participate by bringing any (safe) objects that they would like to let go of in a primitive, ritualistic way—especially ephemera from the 80s and 90s.
- Hammock residents Kara and Ian will facilitate a discussion about our culture’s tendency toward accumulation and the ways in which we all engage in some form of hoarding.
Friday April 27th - Opening reception + Performances
- the Hammock Residency will be converted into an exhibition space, in which Kara and Ian will showcase digital, print, and three dimensional works made while in Vancouver.
- @ 730pm, Kara and Ian will participate in the Low Lives performance festival, in which artists from all over the world perform via a streaming internet connection. we will be broadcasting to audiences all over the internet, as well as performing to a live audience here in Vancouver.
