Artist Skawennati (Mohawk, turtle clan) investigates concepts of time and self. Through representations of avatars, most notably her online persona (which she has maintained for over a decade in the virtual world, Second Life), Skawennati engages various mechanisms of gaming and play, interweaving traditional Mohawk stories and ritual objects with new technologies and processes. 

Join us for her artist talk on Tuesday March 19 at 4:30pm in the Visual Arts Centre room 100. This artist talk preceeds the exhibition From SkyWorld to Cyberspace opening on Thursday, March 21 at 8PM at McIntosh Gallery. The exhibition will continue through to April 27.
