Charles Stankievech: The Desert Turned To Glass

Contemporary Calgary, Calgary, AB - Mar 2 - May 14

by Robin Laurence

Expect to be visually and sonically immersed in this ambitious “transmedia” instal- lation by award-winning Canadian artist Charles Stankievech. Making full use of Contemporary Calgary’s planetarium architecture, from the projection room of its dome to the huge galleries below, the artist asks us to consider different theories of human consciousness and the origins of life on Earth. Geographically and cosmically diverse video and audio recordings transport us across the planet, into its subterra- nean depths and out through the vastness of deep space.
