Canadian artist Jane Tingley is interested in “looking at the not-so-perfect nature of technology and trying to find poetry in it.”  The appearance of her work in Currents 2014 suggests something beyond the technological. Re-Collect is a series of suspended, glowing objects connected with cabling. The light-sound piece, which resembles a jellyfish and a tree, is designed to recall the synaptic connections within the brain.

Tingley, an assistant professor of hybrid media in the department of fine arts at the University of Waterloo, Ontario, made the prototype form of the hanging objects out of clay, referring to medical drawings of synapses. “I gave the form to a cabinetmaker, and it was spun on a lathe. It’s a beautiful form. Then it was cut in half and carved out in the center. I took the two halves, and I made molds and clear-cast them in resin.
