Anna Hawkins: Blue Light Blue

Anna Hawkins’ new film Blue Light Blue examines contemporary relationships to screens and devices. By employing the visual language of horror films Hawkins casts the blue light emitted by smartphones, laptops, and tablets as a threat that has been unwittingly invited into our most intimate spaces. While more and more of our lives and interactions are taking place in a virtual realm, this work encourages careful reflection on not only the negative health impacts of living through a screen but on the more insidious ramifications on our own personal safety as online platforms alter behavior and devices actively surveil their users.

Anna Hawkins: Blue Light Blue is organized by the Art Gallery of Alberta, and curated by Lindsey Sharman. The RBC New Works Gallery features new artworks by Alberta artists and continues the Art Gallery of Alberta’s tradition of supporting and promoting Alberta artists.
