Director Statement
Allyson’s area of specialization is in painting and drawing. In 2017 she participated in a four-week intensive at the School of Machines, Making, and Make-Believe in Germany, where she learned how to develop 3D animation with Unity. Her augmented reality projects have been exhibited at The School of Machines, Making and Make Believe (Closer) in Berlin, Germany and Gallery and Art Placement (Bliss and the Dreadful Sublime) in Saskatoon, SK, Canada. In 2018 her virtual reality project called “The Gate” exhibited at the Tech Art show, Toronto Science Centre, Toronto, ON, Canada.
Allyson has collaborated with the Saskatoon Jazz Orchestra in 2018 and more recently in 2021 for multimedia performances including 3D and 2D animations. For the first performance in 2018, she created a 3D animation to simulate the visual synesthesia experience of sound that projected behind the orchestra while they performed “Bewitched, Bewildered, and Bothered” (composed by Richard Rodgers, 1940). Their more recent collaboration “Dimensions of Sound” include a multimedia performance by the orchestra and projections of two 2D hand drawn animations (“Above the Deluge” and “Into the Fray”) at the Broadway Theatre in Saskatoon. This project is supported by the Canada Council for the Arts Digital Now Fund.
