Andrew Maize with a.corn inc
March 5 – 29, 2012
The installation of (i)Pads by a.corn inc reconstructs the Corridor Gallery to display newly designed conceptual crafts from March 5 – 29, 2012. Describing the new products Andrew Maize, director of a.corn inc, explains the design:
If you are tired of trying to keep up with the latest and greatest technology, then the new (i)Pad 3 is for you. When you pick up the (i)Pad 3, it becomes an extension of you. And it makes resting natural after a long day of searching the web, checking email, watching movies and reading books, you’ll wonder how you ever managed without it. Technology that just makes scents: technology so unadvanced, you’ll forget it’s even there.
a.corn inc is the brainchild of emerging artist: Andrew Maize. The new Halifax based collective has a mandate to produce locally, hand-made technologies with humanitarian, environmental and concraftualist ethics. For more information on the (i)Pad 3 project visit http://thenewipad3.wordpress.com.
