Shifting the geometry of the Cinesphere's Triodetic Dome design, Jenn E Norton imagines alternate uses for the iconic structure. Three animated vignettes position the Cinesphere in fantastical realms, where the edifice itself becomes mutable in form, purpose and potential.
Jenn E Norton is an artist working closely with the technologies she employs within her studio practice, marrying formal and intuitive processes. Often using stereoscopic interactive video, animation, installation, sound and kinetic sculpture, Norton's imaginative compositions of disjunctive imagery are bound together in post-production, rendering familiar landscapes, objects, and activities strange, reframing longstanding expectations. Norton has exhibited nationally and internationally, winning numerous awards for her work, including the Canada Council for the Arts International Residency Program at La cité Internationale des Arts (Paris, France), and the OCADU Integrated Media Medal. Exhibitions of Norton's work in 2016 include the Ways of Something project curated by Lorna Mills “Dreamlands: Immersive Cinema and Art, 1905–2016″ at the Whitney Museum of American Art, Tomorrow is Another Day, Tomorrow is not Another Today, at The Art Foundation in Athens, Greece and Mondes Bricolés at the Art Gallery of Guelph.
