Join artist Tosca Terán in this two-session exploratory workshop which will show participants how to build a Bio-sonification module and sonically collaborate with other-than-human life.

Tosca Terán describes herself as an interdisciplinary human holobiont whose work is a confluence of art, ecology, and craft. Tosca has received funding support and residencies for her immersive, expanded reality, nonhuman bio-sonification projects. She is an invited tutor for the Venice Biennale Cinema College VR. Her recent explorations into fungal mycelium biodata bring her to SPUN, collaborating with aerospace engineer Dr. Valeria La Saponara at UC Davis, California, towards the potential of communicating with fungi.

Synthetic Language: Working with Large Language Models
Thursdays, March 9 & 16 | 6-9pm EST

Two Sessions
$40 Member | $60 Regular (Non-Member) | $80 Regular + Donation

Join UKAI Projects for a two-session workshop where participants will experience how synthetic language is being used creatively and receive direction on their own AI-generated projects.

UKAI Projects produces culture for what’s coming. We support polyphony in response to critical issues to avoid polarization or a reduction to ‘sides’. We model the relationships we hope to see and prefigure the conditions of our freedom. We experiment with new values at the centre of technologies and systems in opposition to the hegemony of efficiency and growth. UKAI supports a diverse and resilient culture so that our society can continue to draw on a rich mix of solutions for today and for future generations.

Creating 3D environments with Neural Radiance Fields (NERF)
Saturday, March 25 | 1-4pm EST
In-person at InterAccess (950 Dupont St., Unit 1)
One Session

Join artist Dan Tapper in leveraging exciting AI technology to recreate 3D space by capturing images and light. This technique allows participants to create realistic scenes where light moves and shifts organically. They will begin by using this method in its conventional form, from these tests they will explore how to manipulate the technology to create unique 3D environments and fields of light.

Dan Tapper is an artist and creative technologist interested in the intersection between information and experience. His current projects include building sonic VR environments and using machine learning to create new forms of divination.

Calling all members of our community who identify as LGBTQ+! InterAccess will be hosting our Winter LGBTQ+ Mixer in our studio on Thursday, February 9. Come out for refreshments, networking, a presentation from our lead Samay Arcentales Cajas, and to socialize with our community! This event for LGBTQ+ folks to gather and learn about the work they’re creating in our community and beyond.

Samay Arcentales Cajas is a queer Toronto-based Kichwa digital media artist and video designer exploring human-land relations, the new media dimensions of indigenous cosmology, and immersive art as a site of liberation. Her works have been shown at ImagineNATIVE, Xpace Cultural Centre, Mayworks Festival, Tarragon Theatre, TQFF, SoulPepper, among others.


The weekly Open Studio program will be officially resuming tomorrow, February 8th, 2023, and will run most Wednesdays in-person from 6-9 pm in our studio. You can keep up to date with our current programming and schedule on our website and public calendar.


We regret that at this time InterAccess does not have barrier-free access; we are currently working to improve the accessibility of all facilities.

There are five steps with a railing up to our main entrance with automatic doors. Once inside all facilities are on the same level, and there is an accessible single-user washroom inside the unit.

Image descriptions:
1. A blurry image of an alleyway in a city or town. A building with a brown base and grey top is seen to the left while trees are seen to the left. A blue sky and two pyramid-like sculptures are seen in the distance.
2. A plastic container holding mushrooms with a blue and green wire exiting the opened lid.
3. A pale blue background is overlaid by two silhouettes of men wearing brimmed hats, sitting on either side of a table covered in audio equipment. The faint image of a face is seen in the background.
4. A blurry image of a person in a pink and white striped shirt standing on a hill with their back to the viewer, looking at a blue sky. Grey and green out-of-focus blobs obscure the image.
