MIMMiC (Mobile Interactive Modular Multi-screen iPad Canvas) allows artists to create and exhibit work interactively on a matrix of iPads. The touchscreens can be displayed dynamically in 2D and 3D spaces, responding in unison activated by the viewer. Paul Wong and Patrick Daggitt are collaborating with Vancouver-based artists Sammy Chien, Evann Siebens, Adam Myhill, and Christine Wallace to redefine the canvas for the digital age. Each of these artists will present individual works using the MIMMIC system.
