Installation shot for Tegan Moore’s A Negentropic Promise at DNA Artspace, on until September 27. Vancouver! Tegan is also part of 221A’s current show, The Corruption of Time’s Dust. From her DNA exhibition write-up:
"An object which shines is an object that can be renewed by having its shine restored; it is a negentropic promise, and the promise of future rescindings." - Steven Connor, Intact
"…a man, standing casually with one leg crossed over the other, looks at the view through his camera’s viewfinder for no other purpose than the sheer pleasure of doing so…" -Geoffrey Batchen, Burning with Desire.

The Resource Room, an appendix to the show, allowed visitors to reflect on their experience of museums by responding to a series of written questions, such as “How do you see your role as a member of the museum’s audience” and “How do you think the museum perceives you?”
