6:00pm - 7:30pm
at Gamma Space, 862 Richmond Street West
Zeesy Powers will speak about her new animated, interactive VR game currently in development at TAIS Studios.
Building from her previous animated work with watercolour paintings that transform everyday spaces into fantastic environments, Powers will speak about her process of transitioning her sensibilities in performance and 2D visual art into an experimentation with 3D animation processes.
Powers’ new work is invested in inspiring viewer interpretation, so audiences will have opportunity to interact with the work as part of this event!
Following the talk and play session, you are invited to stay for the Different Games afterparty, hosted by Gamma Space. It’s free!
Zeesy Powers is a multi-disciplinary artist who lives and works in Toronto. Powers works with moving images and text in her artistic practice, exploring how technology impacts our lived experience and mediates our relationship to the cultural and natural systems that support and shape society.
Powers has performed and exhibited at venues including PS 122 (New York), CCA Kitkyushu (Japan), The Power Plant Contemporary Art Gallery (Toronto), and the Art Gallery of Ontario (Toronto).

In 2015, she was an Artist in Residence at the Toronto Public Library where she produced “Children’s Story”, a complex multimedia projection performance with the children from diverse nearby communities. In 2014, her first collection of short stories was published by WAAP, entitled Eight Stories.
