Nuff creates interactive installations that invite the audience to examine, rethink and celebrate their relationships to society and the natural world. A multidisciplinary graphic designer by trade, Nuff works at the intersection of form and function, and plays in the spaces between order and chaos. You might recognise a friend of his keeping a watchful eye over Queen Street West.
“Nupanap” (a.k.a Sergio L. Sanchez) is a Toronto based sound designer and interactive media non-expert. Born in Bogotá, Colombia, he set sail during his teenage years to pursue his passion of video game development in the city of Montreal (QC). Starting as a game tester in 2008 and slowly gearing towards becoming a music composer and software analyst, he created soundtracks for multiple video games in the last decade, including the mobile version of “Where’s Waldo?”, a title based on the classic book by Martin Handford, re-imagined by Montreal based developer, Ludia Inc.
Inspired by the unlimited potential of video game technology, combined with the power of mobile devices and modern micro components, he ventured into the world of public installations with a vision of intertwining game creation and public art. After dabbling in courses from Concordia University’s Interactive Media and Cyber Arts program and having the honor to work alongside Montreal’s interactive media artist & pioneer “Iregular”, he gathered enough tools to bring this vision into life. What comes next is a journey of continuous exploration, experimentation and ideas to enliven digital universes and daily commutes. www.nupanap.com
Can the impact of an individual on a society truly be measured without the context of the other members? Is our legacy defined by each of us, or by all of us? We are all different, just as each facet of a crystal is unique, lending a different quality to the light that passes through it. However, it is only in the collective that a crystal’s true beauty and strength can be appreciated.
Feel free to walk around the crystal, observing its response (or indifference) to your presence. More importantly observe the others around you, the sun, the wind, the sights and sounds in your immediate surroundings. Note how together, you all create this unique moment in time, one that can never be repeated.
