subtle technologies - LIGHT Performance and presentation of "Biological Narrative #7: Danaus" was part of this year's 11th Subtle Technologies Festival 2008: LIGHT, held in and around Innis Town Hall and U of T in Toronto from 29 May to 1 June, 2008. The festival was the 11th international gathering of artists, scientists, theorists and audience, whose mission is "dedicated to catalyzing the development of new emergent practices in new media art by investigating the artistic relationships and collaborations between artists and scientists within the realms of art, science and technology. 

Bringing together creative practitioners from diverse fields in a week long festival with symposia, workshops, exhibitions, screenings and performances under a topical theme, Subtle Technologies provides a forum to pose and explore questions, exhibit, screen and inspire work that is relevant to the implications of new artistic developments at the intersection of Art, Science and Technology." 

Extending the performance of the live cinema work - "Biological Narrative #7: Danaus" was a symposium discussion of the biological narrative that emerges from the enchainment of visual protein sequences to photoreceptor reactions to pattern recognition to locative/migratory expression and on to the broader roots and recognitions that compose and evolve ecological memory from light.
