Ricarda McDonald

Spatial Nebulosity

January 19 - February 28, 2008

Both Donna Szoke’s reasonable & senseless and Ricarda McDonald’s Spatial Nebulosity utilize play and humour in considering contemporary societal relationships to technology. Ricarda McDonald presents a rich series of collage-like digital images exploring cell phone culture and public space, revealing the ironies of a technology invented to connect while often doing the opposite.

Ricarda McDonald completed a Bachelor of Mathematics at the University of Waterloo after graduating from the National Ballet School. Work in the aeronautical industry, the financial sector, and as a therapeutic parent for emotionally disturbed children, a volunteer worker in India, a literary researcher in Delhi, a construction supervisor in the Himalayas, an editor/publisher and a software specialist followed before a BFA at the ECI.  McDonald now devotes time to underwater photography and being a scuba diving instructor.
