Drawing the Canada-Wide Science Fair is a collective of sixteen artists who have come together to interpret and play with the spectacle of a national science fair through visual language. By drawing on-site during the Canada-Wide Science Fair, the artists will create and immediately broadcast drawings of selected projects on display. The idea is to expand the notion of drawing around science themes to include the potentials of visual priority, cross-disciplinary work, collaborative drawing, multi-perspectival drawing, non-precious drawing, interactions with people, live tweeting, 5-second-delay blogging, and other unexpected possibilities. Here’s an introduction to Corinne Thiessen-Hepher, Canada-Wide Science Fair Artist.
Corinne incubated in a puddle on Roch St. in an average Winnipeg suburb called North Kildonan.
Her summers were spent sailing milk carton boats with her four siblings and bathing in the warm rain water that filled the gutters of the city streets. She spends time swimming underwater with detachable tentacles, and enjoys a good conversation with most insects. She recently made headlines when she became the World Champion for Longest Ride On a Ten Speed With No Hands.
