Anna Hawkins is an artist based in Montreal, Canada, and is the current Open Studio artist-in-residence at Struts Gallery & Faucet Media Arts Centre. Please join us at 7 Lorne Street on Wednesday, July 3 at 5:00 PM, as she will share a talk about her practice and her plans for her time as artist-in-residence at Struts & Faucet. All are welcome.


During her residency, Hawkins plans on working on her project: Blue Light Blue. Blue Light Blue is a film and video work that uses the particular frequency of blue light that is emitted from the backlit LED screens of cellphones, tablets and laptops as a formal element, an experimental narrative device, and a primary material. Drawing aesthetic inspiration from horror films and the cinematic device of “day for night,” Blue Light Blue explores how technology transforms our bodies and our most intimate domestic spaces.
