Some of VoCA’s favorite Canadian artists work in new media: David Rokeby, Rafael Lozanno-Hemmer, David Hoffos, Lisa Steele and Kim Tomczak, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller, to name a few.

Another artist who is using both new media (customized software, video) and sculpture, music and performance in wonderful, innovative ways is Montreal’s Matthew Biederman.

Biederman works with the electromagnetic spectrum as base material in all of his explorations. He explores questions surrounding the spectrum from policy to perception through tactical media projects, performances, installations, and workshops. The Chicago native is presently doing a Masters degree at Concordia University and is represented by Art45 gallery.
