David Rokeby


Over the last three days we have had the pleasure of listening to and engaging with, The Commons’ Artist-In-Residence, David Rokeby. If you are not aware of David’s dynamic practice I suggest you visit his website via the link below that has great documentation of many of his works. As SMA Director Saralyn Reece Hardy says “David has a nimbleness” in thinking and speaking that is fascinating and infectious. David’s work employs a number of different strategies, often using technology, to encourage the participants awareness of their relationship to their bodies and, in turn, the world. He has represented Canada in the Venice and São Paolo Biennales as well as other impressive venues. ARC can’t recommend him enough.
