Tunnel Vision at 401

Tunnel Vision
Presented by: Trinity Square Video

Tunnel Vision

3D animation, video, lighting and sound alter space forming a long and deep disorienting tunnel. Montreal-based photographer Isabelle Hayeur and new media artist/sculptor Éric Raymond create a trompe l’oeil effect based upon the tradition in painting, constructing an illusory surreal space that plays with our senses.
Adopting the history of the trompe l’oeil painting to the realm of video, Hayeur and Raymond literally “trick the eye” into believing that the flat wall of the gallery recedes deeply into a cavernous corridor by creating a fictional space based on the architecture of the actual space. The artists transport us through this fictional environment until we come to the light at the end of the tunnel. Here they overwhelm the senses with light and sound, causing a rupture in our understanding of the space and leaving the viewer with a disoriented, but not unpleasant sensation. In Tunnel Vision Hayeur and Raymond draw our attention to how stimuli – such as light, sound – affect our emotional state and our understanding of an immersive environment. While the rational mind does not believe the illusion Hayeur and Raymond present, our senses tell us otherwise, leaving the viewer with a visual puzzle to solve. Their work built what Hayeur calls “a strangeness that is created via the meeting of divergent universes.” [livewithculture]

Justice @ Mod Club Friday

Justice http://www.myspace.com/etjusticepourtous
Fri, March 30. The Mod Club, 722 College. $20
Soundscapes, Play De, Slinky Music, 2TheBeat, (RT is soldout)

With DJs Mehdi, Sebastian, Busy P. at .
In the way that French filtered house stormed dancefloors in the late '90s, influencing everything in its path, so now the disco punk of Parisian label Ed Banger has come to dominate today's dance scene. Former Daft Punk manager Pedro Winter a.k.a. Busy P is at the helm, but the duo of Xavier de Rosnay and Gaspard Auge, a.k.a. Justice, have led the charge. They came together in 2003 and have been wreaking sonic havoc ever since. Their super-catchy remix of Simian's “Never Be Alone” became a club anthem and led to Justice remixes being commissioned by everyone from DFA 1979 and Daft Punk to Britney Spears. The duo's noisy original track “Waters of Nazareth” hints at the album to come [Eye.net]

A-Skillz of FingerLickin' @ Reverb Sat

anybody that knows anything about the Jtron knows that the records he likey are on (mostly) FingerLickin. A chance to see any artist that shares the same logo as the Drummatic Twins, LeeCoombs, KraftyKuts, PlumpDJs, Soul of man, may be too hard to pass up.

Toronto loves breaks, please bring us more.

Pawa Up First.

These guys played after Fink at Sneaky's a while back but I had to leave to watch Freq Nasty make a salad on the decks.
Pawa Up First The Scenario
Website: Pawa Up First
MySpace: http://www.myspace.com/pawaupfirst
Label: Dare to Care Records
Why You Should Hear it: The Scenario is one of the smoothest releases to come out of Canada in a long time. Pawa Up First gets lazy with the listener and kicks back to some groovy, soothing tunes. No motivation is necessary for The Scenario, the band quickly wraps you in its own little world. [silent ballet]

Oh yeah, and they're playing with Holy F*ck (odd?) this weekend.
Mod Club Theatre * Friday March 23rd
Tickets on sale Now, $12.50 in advance at TM, RT, SS
Doors 9pm // 19+

Happy Vernal Equinox

Lets go balance some eggs. Although thats a total myth as you can balance an egg on either end, on any day of the year.

Bad news my friends. I just found out Black Camel on Adelaide is CLOSED.
They're selling the location to the head chef, who will be opening up his own "wrap and soup" type restaurant.
I called the other location crying profusely, blubbering and wailing uncontrollably. The nice man talked me down and offered to put a sandwich in a cab for me.
They also cater orders of 20 and over.
For the sandwich that makes you see through time, you can still visit the other location on 4 Crescent Road, Toronto, ON, Canada - (416) 929-7518
