ART TAKES ROOT IN FARMING
Owen Sound, Ontario—From November 27 to January 17 , the Tom Thomson Art Gallery presents The Combine Project, an exhibition by Walter’s Falls artist Steven White. All are welcome to join us for the opening reception on Friday, November 27 at 7pm. The artist will give a walking tour of the exhibition.
 
Steven White reconstructs obsolete technology, in this case a combine harvester, to produce wall and kinetic sculpture. His work explores issues of technological evolution and devolution and makes poignant comment on the built-in obsolescence in much of present day technology.
 
This body of work took 5 years to complete and the resulting sculptures and prints reflect a playful sense of wonder at the possibilities present with these lost fragments of technology. The interactive nature of this work brings the viewer into direct physical contact with these ideas and engages them in a playful dance. Cranks rotate, sounds are produced and our individual roles in these complex webs are highlighted. In an age of intense digital technological development, the low-fi nature of these sculptures engages the viewer, who then becomes a collaborator in the finished work.

Free public tours on Sunday December 20 and January 17 starting at 2pm.
