Description

In her films, artist Mika Rottenberg explores the different ways we can interact with matter. Her film, Spaghetti Blockchain, which is also the title of her exhibition at MOCA, shows colourful objects being melted, burned, squished, and sliced. When we handle an object or material, it will behave based on its state of matter - solid, liquid, or gas. But what if a material acted like two different states of matter at the same time?


For our May TD Community Sunday, join MOCA and three special guests for a live workshop all about Oobleck, an ooey-gooey material that can shift from solid to liquid instantly. Follow along with an Ontario Science Centre Host to create Oobleck using just cornstarch and water, and learn about the science behind this fascinating material. Then, artists Germaine Liu and Christopher Willes will guide you through a journey of listening and sound-making through touch, movement, and object activation to allow us to explore and get to know the Oobleck.  


This event takes place on TD Community Sunday.
TD Community Sundays are made possible by the TD Bank Group through its corporate citizenship platform TD Ready Commitment.
