Mitchell F. Chan & Michelle Gay

April 11 – May 5, 2017
Humber Galleries North Space

howTo.write(poetry) brings together two artworks by Mitchell F. Chan and Michelle Gay that deeply engage with historical texts. Each artist communes with another author’s writing through a computational translation of the original. Chan rewrites conceptual artist Sol Lewitt’s instructions for a wall drawing using Processing code while Gay employs automated machine translation to subtly alter the surviving text fragments of Greek philosopher Parmenides. Both pieces are poetic systems in the ancient Greek understanding of poiesis, meaning creation or formation. They are engines that generate endless variations of each artwork. Continuing a conversation across time, language, and media, Chan and Gay speak to and through the embedded historical concerns of their primary texts, adding a digital perspective as they grapple with the relationship between thought and being, idea and thing, meaning and interpretation.
