    POLYPHONICS refers to the harmony of two or more textures in a melodious composition. This exhibit is to explore harmony between colours or chords. Unless working with light, artists work in a subtractive colour model to achieve these distinct ideas. Explorations are of colour harmonies such as cool, warm, complementary, analogous, monochromatic, or triadic, to create a whole concept. Works presented are largely involving multimedia imagery whether mimicking, projecting, or displaying.

    This exhibition will show projects of emerging local artists in a variety of formats including media, installation, and painting.

    Saturday, December 13 | 7pm
    The James Black Gallery | 144 East 6th Avenue, Vancouver, BC

    Soldiers’ Stories is being recognized simultaneously as the world’s oldest 3-D film and one of its newest! We are proud of the fact that Oscar-winning producer Nicholas Reed and producer/director Jonathan Kitzen brought their powerful story to the modern screen with expertise from Emily Carr’s own S3D Centre.

    The film recently debuted in Beverly Hills, has been shown in LA, New York and London, and now runs regularly at the National Infantry Museum (IMAX theatre) outside Fort Benning, Georgia. With the compelling voices of recent American vets, and narration by Mickey Rooney, never-before-seen, soldier-taken, century-old 3-D photographs were converted for the modern screen with the stereoscopic expertise of Dr. Maria Lantin and her research team at Emily Carr University.

    Beayue Louie, a fourth year Industrial Design student, was awarded the 2013 Association of Canadian Ergonomists Undergraduate Student Award for her assistive design project, Play By Ear: Adaptive Earring Clips, which was presented at ACE’s 44th Annual Conference: "From Sea to Sky: Expanding the Reach of Ergonomics" in Whistler, BC (October 2013).

    Our sense of self is often shaped by how we believe others view us. Thus, the way we express ourselves through clothing and accessories plays an important role in the development of our identity. This serves true for both individuals with a disability and those without.
