Colby Richardson is a media artist and experimental filmmaker currently based in Toronto ON, Canada. Driven by a fascination with underused media technologies and by the way we interact with and value the technology at our disposal, Richardson’s work examines the artistic capabilities of tools and devices often unconsidered and dismissed.


Performance for Aging Apple Devices

7x iphone / ipad / imac

A/V Performance


Performance for aging Apple devices is a composition which uses facetime video calls between damaged and discarded iPads, iPhones, and iMacs - and the nuances and limitations they produce - as a catalyst for new expanded cinema. The piece builds upon Richardson’s continued exploration into modes of appropriation of ubiquitous and outmoded media, and takes a playful approach to structualist work. The performance is designed to be live streamed (and viewed) on multiple devices.

Performance for aging Apple devices was co-presented by PLATFORM centre and The Art Gallery of Regina and performed and live streamed on June 1st and 4th 2020.
