At the Angell Gallery, until June 1st, you have the opportunity to take a good look at Mitchell F. Chan‘s Studies in Movement, Absentia. The exhibition explores notions of movement and stillness through the use of rapidly spinning coloured elastic strings. After an extended viewing, the string’s movement will change your perception of motion in general, as the strings begin to appear as a solid geometric form.
This exhibition, perhaps more than others, benefits greatly from viewing the objects in their physical space, as opposed to photographs. The whir of the motors, the constant motion of the string, is something that you need to see and feel, in order to understand the depth of their design.
Please do take the time to visit the Angell Gallery at 12 Ossington Avenue before June 1st to view Studies in Movement, Absentia by Mitchell F. Chan.
