Sheridan College Glass Studio 2024 Grad Show


Vetro Fuso showcases works from the different glass making disciplines practiced at the college, exploring the limitless possibilities of this amorphous material. With guidance and mentoring from Sheridan staff and resident artists, the students of Sheridan College’s glass studio have developed a remarkable body of works, reflecting each student’s own distinct, personal character. Sometimes fluid, organic; sometimes as still as a perfect gem cut from the earth’s interior - we invite you to experience the different individual interpretations of this paradoxical material.

Human in the Loop  

April 6-14, 2024. Opening reception: Saturday April 6, 5-8PM.

Shay Salehi & Gina D’Aloisio. Curated by Katie Chin.

Shay Salehi & Gina D’Aloisio


Human in the Loop is an immersive and collaborative exhibition by Shay Salehi and Gina D’Aloisio. Through kinetic steel and hyperreal silicone sculpture, the artists explore the interconnectedness of nature, technology, and humanity, however simulated and memetic.

Augmented by the whir of motors, video and sound installations, the sculptures form a landscape held together by the circuitry of exchanged memory. Human in the Loop takes inspiration from the phenomenon of mud-puddling, a behavior observed in butterflies where they seek liquid nutrients, often from the dead or living bodies of other species. Salehi and D’Aloisio's collaborative installation delves into the complexities of our relationship to technology, examining themes of biomimicry, consumption, and the blurred boundaries between the natural and the artificial.

As attendees navigate the exhibition, they are encouraged to contemplate decay as lack of consciousness and our diminished connectedness to nature. With a glitch in the balance of life, our shared sense of reality and collected knowledge breaks down. The exhibition complicates technology’s integration into the living world and how it has altered humanity’s narrative of existence.

The artists would like to extend a special thanks to Cody Frost, Benjamin Dimock and Jonathan Onyschuk in fabrication support of this work, the Banff Centre for Arts and Creativity, and Nurielle Stern.

Supported by the Canada Council for the Arts.
