PanoptiBot II This two-part installation is meant to represent the way we thoughtlessly interact with surveillance capitalism. It's a continuation of the A/V interactive sculptures displayed at Nuit Blanche Winnipeg in 2021. An interior display with multiple monitors will show people interacting with the exterior part of the installation outside of 264 McDermot. Inside 2 to 4 interactive sculptures featuring monitor-camera combos will display distorted versions of participants' faces. The result is a highly shareable photo opportunity where the sculpture makes it appears if people's heads are TV screens with distorted visages. Please note, the outside portion of this installation is on the sidewalk and accessible to the public. The inside portion will be available to those 19 and older.

Organized by

Culture Days Manitoba

Arts and creative expression are, and always have been, part of everyday life in Manitoba. Culture Days is an opportunity to celebrate cultural expression and creativity in our lives as artists, audience, patrons, and participants. Culture Days Manitoba is a non-profit organization that facilitates opportunities for all Manitobans to engage with arts and culture. We produce the annual Nuit Blanche Winnipeg event, a free exploration and celebration of contemporary art. No matter your age or skill-level, Culture Days offers a chance to try something new. The festivities will include visual arts, heritage, Indigenous arts and traditional practices, cross-cultural activities, educational tours, community street festivals, collective art-making projects, interactive installations, storytelling, avant-garde performance art and more. We encourage everyone to rediscover their city, their community, and their province as they explore the full range of Culture Days and Nuit Blanche activities!
