Cannon cloud collisions for Art & Inactivism

Two clouds rush toward each other and collide before dissipating in this installation by Mitchell F. Chan. Titled Something Something National Conversation (In 2 Characters Or Less), the crashing forms of water vapor are featured in his Art & Inactivism exhibit at Toronto’s Angell Gallery from December 10, 2016 until January 7, 2017. The accompanying vocalizations are from Infinite News Feed, an exhibit piece that algorithmically-generates a musical score of words from the day’s news headlines.

And more art: A time lapse of Sol LeWitt’s Wall Drawing 797 and the jazz of a helium ball & charcoal.
