SUBTLE TECHNOLOGIES is pleased to present WE++, a festival inquiring into cultural heritage, ancestry, hybrid identities, and virtual environments. We++ consists of three interrelated events – a panel conversation, an interactive architectural scale new media installation and a digitally oriented workshop series. The program playfully examines virtual place-making in-game presentation interfaces and genetic databases as a means for decolonization and reconciliation through disparate modes of (re)presentation.

PHIL SCHLEIHAUF is a queer artist, facilitator, and recovering software developer, thinking about how to challenge cultural narratives that touch their own experiences. After 10 years in the startup and tech industry, Phil attended the School For Poetic Computation in New York, and has since focused on art and education. They now organize artist-run workshops through Ones and Zeros, an organization focused on creativity and accessibility in electronics and computation.

CALE BRADBURY is a multidisciplinary millennial maker with a focus on work that both lives online and is created with open-source and browser-based tools. Cale is primarily self-taught, historically learning through making games and gifs, and is currently focusing his energy towards improving and using the open-source VJ software Hedron.

JONATHAN CARROLL is an XR artist and developer who makes games and software. His applications have been shown at the Art Gallery of Ontario and the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago, and his apps V/Art, Gigco, and GreetAR are available via the App Store. Jonathan teaches game design and XR to artists at the Ontario College of Art & Design and Trinity Square Video in Toronto.



Subtle Technologies would like to acknowledge funding support from the Canada Council for the Arts, the Ontario Arts Council, and the Toronto Arts Council.
