An Invitation: On the Subject of Darkness

An Invitation: On the Subject of Darkness

From November 12 – 21, 2015, KIAC’s current Artists in Residence invite interested Dawsonites to participate in short interviews on the subject of Darkness, intended to inform a new light installation created for Dawson City in late November.


Interviews will be informal and range from 10 – 20 minutes in length. Subjects will vary from the weather to the stars and beyond, with a focus on the physical, psychological, and social implications of darkness (particularly poignant during this transitional season).

While people with a pre-existing relationship with darkness are encouraged (ie. astronomers, artists, people of northern heritage, vision-impaired people, etc.) all ages and all walks of life are invited to participate.

Interviews will be recorded, but will remain anonymous. Coffee or tea is included.

Interview Dates:

November 12 – 21, 2015
