Small Sonorities: Material Signals

Artist Ellen Moffat, an instructor in the Department of Art & Art History, has been commissioned by Remai Modern (Saskatoon) to create an original web project. Small Sonorities: Material Signals will be on view on the Remai Modern website from March 1 to 31.

Remai Modern has been inviting artists to realize original projects exclusively for online viewing. On the first day of every month, work by a new artist appears on Remai Modern’s homepage. The web commissions are curated by Gregory Burke, Executive Director & CEO, and Sandra Guimarães, Director of Programs & Chief Curator at Remai Modern.

Moffat uses hi/low tech and aesthetics as a poetic and conceptual inquiry into sound, materials, composition and language. In Small Sonorities: Material Signals, objects are driven by low-frequency signal that transfers action (visible) into sound (invisible) as translation and metaphor for entanglement and interconnectivity. Sonic kinetic actions may suggest psychological states, ecological instability or social disturbance, referring to forces and noise in our personal lives and everyday environment.

Moffat's practice includes independent and interdisciplinary collaborations with visual, literary and performing arts, including media, dance, music and voice. Her work has been widely exhibited nationally and internationally.
