Portrait of Lake Ontario


Nicole Clouston

November 2nd - 28th, 2018

Opening Reception: Friday, November 9th - 6:00pm - 11:00pm

Portrait of Lake Ontario is composed of fifteen acrylic prisms filled with mud that the artist harvested from fifteen locations around the Canadian and American sides of Lake Ontario; each with their own unique microbial community. When exposed to light and provided with nutrients, the microbes already present in the mud began to flourish. Their colonies grew until they were visible to the naked eye as vibrant mar- bling. They will continue to grow throughout their exhibition.

Function Keys is a four-day conference organized by Centre3 for Print and Media Arts that aims to explore contemporary ideas and issues in new tech- nologies and digital culture. Function Keys takes place November 8th- 11th 2018.
