Shroud/Chrysalis I explores our immersion in electromagnetic fields, the stuff of new technologies and ourselves. To participate, you are invited to be wrapped in copper taffeta, an electro-magnetic fabric that will shield and disengage you from cell phones, radio, television and other signals. Surrender control and become the object. Is this work a body bag or a chrysalis?

Catherine Richards’ visual and media work points to the after-effects of technology. She has received several awards, including the Canada Council for the Arts’ Media Arts Prize. She is featured in key publications such as Art & Science Now, and discussed by significant theorists including Dyson, Hayes, and Tuer. Richards has exhibited nationally and internationally, including at ZKM Germany and the Biennale of Sydney.
