KC Adams, Eatons
KC Adams - Artist Statement
I am a Winnipeg artist, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from Concordia University. In my art practice, I tend to combine diverse mediums such as clay, electronics, and computer interfaces to create physical and virtual installations. Contrasting social issues faced by North Americans consumerist culture inspire the content of my work. I have been particularly interested in the idea of polar concepts (dualism) and how society reacts to them on a psychological level. Currently my interests lean towards Nature/Technology. Visual references of this can be found in the bus shelter piece called Eatons. However, my intent is to visualize the turmoil that the community of Winnipeg faced over the fate of the historic Eatons Building.
