Event Description
Based in Toronto, Canada, artist David Rokeby has been creating and exhibiting since 1982. For the first part of his career he focused on interactive pieces that directly engage the human body, or that involve artificial perception systems. Over the past decade, his practice has expanded to included video and kinetic and static sculpture. His work has been performed and exhibited across Canada, the United States, Europe and Asia. Visit The Commons to view Rokeby's installation "Very Nervous System" (1986-1990) from 4:00-5:30, then hear the artist speak about his practice at 5:30.
