Catalogue excerpt
Navigating the peculiarly demarcated oases of the virtual, commenting on the speculative nature of screens, and capitalizing on technology’s ability to inspire belief, void loop() is a contemporary meditation on spirituality, pregnant with cautionary messages about the precariousness of our times. If these works represent only a small portion of Eyler’s and Lapointe’s broader investigation on the entanglements of technology, transcendence, and phenomenal occurrences, they exemplify our urge to read fullness and significance into the immaterial void, from the vast expanse of the empyrean regions, down to the void of a video display monitor.

– Laura Demers
