Siting Technologyby Daina Augaitis, Richard Kazis, Tom Sherman
This catalogue accompanies Siting Technology, an exhibition held at the Walter Phillips Gallery, Banff (November 12 - December 5, 1987). Curated by Daina Auguaitis, this exhibition brought together six artists who examine technology through their work; Dale Amundson, Diana Burgoyne, Mona Hatoum, Richard Kriesche, Nancy Paterson, Tom Sherman, and Nell Tenhaaf. As members of a critical community, the artists in this exhibition attempt to locate, site, and appropriate place for technology within their lives and their art practices. Through interactivity, technology becomes the primary subject of their artistic exploration, not simply the tool. Essays by Daina Augaitis, Diana Burgoyne, Richard Kazis, Nancy Paterson, Tom Sherman, and Nell Tenhaaf.
