Out of the digital laboratory of the north, a.k.a. Canadian media art practice and its affiliates, comes a document of wonder and amazement. ELECTRIC LIVING IN CANADA, a soon to be published DVD-ROM, represents the activities and thoughts of media theorists and artists from Canada and beyond. A host of characters that use technology in their work or espouse a critique of new technologies are assembled for your perusal.  The line-up includes Stelarc, Arthur Kroker, Derrick de Kerckhove, Niranjan Rajah, Thecla Schiphorst, Ahasiw Maskegon-Iskwew, Dale Amundson, James Faure Walker, Reva Stone, John Oswald, Christof Migone, Robert Ouellette, Jeanne Randolph, Sara Diamond, Elizabeth Fischer, Nancy Paterson, Adrianne Wortzel, Dave Watson, John Pungente, Liss Jeffrey, Vera Frenkel, Daniel Jolliffe,  Alain Mongeau, Eric McLuhan and many others. The Electric Living in Canada project has emerged from Marshall McLuhan's research on "organising ignorance for discovery", and is an extension of the thought approach he originated and developed with the help of his various colleagues, especially Barrington Nevitt. Accompanied by musical guest The Winks, Vancouver-based Electric Living launches the results of their investigations into Canadian media culture. Come join the fair!
