We were most flattered to be included as part of John Pohl’s article on Art Souterrain in the weekend edition of the Montreal Gazette. We met with John on opening night of the event and we had a very interesting conversation about art and security and a number of other topics. Thanks for the support John!
Have you had a chance to see TouchCubes yet? It’s on display at the Centre de Commerce Mondial de Montreal (747, Car Victoria) until Sunday March 15th. We hope you’ll have the chance to stop by between now and then, but if you need any further incentive if you take a picture of yourself with the TouchCubes and post to Twitter or Facebook with the hashtag #meandthecubes. we’ll send you a very special SubZeroArts coffee mug! Available in both left- and right-handed versions, these mugs are valuable and desirable pieces that we’re sure you would love to add to your personal art and/or mug collection!
Looking forward to seeing your pictures!

We were very pleased to discover that TouchCubes has been listed by The Main as one of the pieces they’re most excited for at Art Souterrain! Thanks very much to Kelli Sturkenboom of The Main for including our work in her article!

We’re happy to announce that the TouchCubes have been activated and are on display as part of Art Souterrain! We had an awesome time in Montreal over the weekend, and we were so happy to see so many of you enjoying our latest installation. Don’t worry if you weren’t able to make it out during opening weekend though, TouchCubes is on display at the Centre de Commerce Mondial de Montreal (747, Car Victoria) until March 15th. We hope that you’ll get a chance to check it out!
We’d like to thank everybody for their support over the last few weeks leading up to the event, including our incredibly knowledgeable technical advisers Max Stevens-Guille and Dian Carlo, our Super-Awesome Coordinatrice and Photographer Melanie May Taillon, and all of the staff at Art Souterrain (especially Jeff who was more than happy to lend a hand or two on a few occasions during set-up).
But most importantly we’d like to thank all of YOU for supporting our work and coming to see TouchCubes! We always appreciate your encouragement and interest in our work, and we do hope that you’ll keep in touch with us by liking SubZeroArts on Facebook or following us on Twitter so we can keep you informed about future work that we do. We’re already making plans for our next project and we hope that you’ll be there to see it!

One week from tonight we’ll be in Montreal to debut our latest installation TouchCubes as part of Art Souterrain, and we are totally looking forward to meeting you all! We’ve been hard at work cutting acrylic, checking connections, wiring wires, and making countless trips to the hardware store, all with the intention of making the most awesome installation we can for you to enjoy. We can hardly wait for you to see it!
A few more details for those of you who have been asking: TouchCubes will be showing at the Centre de Commerce Mondial de Montreal, which is located at 747, Car Victoria. We’ll be there in person on opening night Saturday February 28th, but if you can’t make it out then, TouchCubes will be on display until March 15th. We hope you’ll be able to stop by!
Last but not least, we’re always grateful to those of you who have asked if we need any help putting TouchCubes together, and we always appreciate your support. The best thing you can do would be to tell your friends about us, and help signal boost what we’re doing by sharing our posts on your Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and what have you, and of course we would be thrilled if you’d like to make a donation to cover some of our costs!
Gotta run right now, we have about 60 gazillion things to do today, but we look forward to chatting with you again soon!

SubZeroArts is very happy to announce that our latest installation “TouchCubes” will be on display from February 28th to March 15th as part of Art Souterrain in Montreal, Quebec.
“TouchCubes” is a brand new installation featuring a collection of interactive cubes that respond to being touched by illuminating and emitting soft soothing music. In keeping with SubZeroArts’ ideal that the audience should be part of the art, “TouchCubes” allows participants to influence and create their own artistic experience, sharing in the creative process.
We’re very happy to be presenting “TouchCubes” to a whole new audience in Montreal, and we’re looking forward to meeting all of you! Be sure to keep checking back here at http://www.subzeroarts.com for more information about “TouchCubes” and Art Souterrain, or feel free to like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter so you can stay in the loop.

Our bags are packed, Carolyn has selected appropriate snacks for the train, and the Kobo is fully charged. The train leaves Toronto at 9:25 sharp and arrives in Ottawa at 2:30pm. Then it’s getting everything set up and organized, maybe a quick shower and a change of clothes then it’s showtime!
We do hope that you’ll be joining us for the debut of MNML at the Ottawa School of Art (Room 306) as part of Nuit Blanche Ottawa+Gatineau, we promise that it’ll be worth the visit. And if you can’t make it out by virtue of geographical misfortune, that’s totally okay, we’ll be sure to take lots of pictures for your later viewing!
See you tomorrow night!
As I type this, my apartment is awash with the glow of MNML. It looks great, and we are sooooooo excited to be able to share it with you at Nuit Blanche Ottawa+Gatineau!
Be sure to come out to see us at the Ottawa School of Art on Saturday September 20th from 620pm to 421am, we’re really looking forward to seeing you!
It’s exceedingly difficult to create art without wires, cables, extensions. HDMI, USB, RCA, power, we are adrift in a sea of them…
Nuit Blanche Ottawa+Gatineau is less than a week away and we still have a ton of things to do, but we’re getting things done and we’re totally excited to be able to unveil MNML! We’ve confirmed that we’re in Room 306 at the Ottawa School of Art, and we’re really looking forward to seeing you!
As always, we’ve been very grateful for all of your support and encouragement along the way, and we really appreciate your offers to help us make MNML the best installation it can be! So for those of you that are interested, here are a couple of ways that you can help us out;
1) Spread the word! Give us a signal boost! Like us on Facebook! Retweet some of our tweets! Help us let everybody in Ottawa know that they should come see MNML! Tell your friends about us, send them a link to our site, post a blog about us and let your readers know what we’re doing! Tell people about us and let them know they should come out to support us!
Make a donation to SubZeroArts! It costs a lot of money to do an installation like MNML and we’d be thrilled if you wanted to contribute to our costs! We’ve set up a donations page on our website if you’d like to help us out that way.
Or maybe you have an idea about how you’d like to help? Let us know what you think, we’d love to hear from you!

We’ve been hard at work on MNML for a few weeks now, and with only nine days left to go before Nuit Blanche Ottawa+Gatineau,we’re happy to report that everything is coming together quite nicely, thank you for asking! Programming is coming along smoothly as evidenced by the screenshot to your left, planning and logistics are falling into place, and we’re feeling pretty good about everything so far. We still have a long way to go over the next few days but we’re moving along according to schedule and we’re feeling pretty good about that!
By the way, we wanted to let you know that we’re presenting in a different location this year! We’re really excited to be showing MNML at the Ottawa School of Art (35 George Street) and while we’ll miss all of our friends who hosted us at Club SAW for the last two years, we’re really looking forward to making some new friends at a new venue!
Gotta run, we have about eight things left to do tonight if we want to stay on schedule, but we’ll be in touch with you all again very soon. In the meantime, if you haven’t already, why not like us on Facebook or follow us on Twitter so you can keep up to date with everything that’s going on with MNML?
