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. For most of us it is the first time we have been truly disconnected. 

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.
