[ISEA2015] Artists Statement: Pippa Lattey & Thomas Evdokimoff – BANANA INSTALLATION

Artists Statement

Nylon fabric, wood, electronics (2015)

Banana Installation intervenes into space with a multitude of large, inflatable bananas. Each banana responds to the viewer with an inflation and a deflation. The movement is accompanied by a burst of sound: vocalizing the syllables banana. These are not real bananas. These are symbols, icons, disassociated from our physical experiences. They are brought into a public space to activate a tangible, shared experience, revealing a rift between the real and the virtual.

  • Pippa Lattey creates sculptures that move, and systems that mimic psychological and physical interactions. Lattey is a student at Emily Carr University of Art and Design, with a BSc in Computer Science from the University of Victoria. She has exhibited at Vancouver Maker Faire, AMS Art Gallery, HR MacMillan Space Centre and Science World.
  • Thomas Evdokimoff is a freelance musician and educator based in Vancouver. He holds a Masters in music theory from the University of British Columbia. Evdokimoff’s sound projects explore the relationship between the sounds of the natural world and classic electronic music techniques.
