Doug Buis and Brad Harder
That’s What’s Going On, 2018
Kamloops-based artists Doug Buis and Brad Harder transform the Riverside Park into a dynamic, audio-visual encounter that draws on and alters our experience of the local environment. Harder’s video and audio collage trace his explorations of familiar Kamloops sites and sounds (urban intersections, shunting trains and backyard chicken coops) through a computer generated mosaic. Woven into Buis’ built environment, permutations, disruptions and manipulated videos and sounds fly through the trees and congregate around the tree trunks. This collaboration of image, object and sound examine our malleable perception of environment and address the dramatic transformation of our landscape through natural and human intervention.
