Writing Hmoe for Moating Take is a video installation concerning relocation, devoted to a problematized and self-involved investigation of origin and place. Inspired by technology and network culture, the installation explores the tensions between natural reality, puerility, and artificiality, while communicating an authentic narrative of migration.

Christofer Degrér is an emerging artist from Malmö, Sweden. He received his Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Ringling College of Art and Design in Sarasota, Florida, and spent some years in New York and Berlin before returning to his hometown of Malmö.

Perpetual Inventory is an installation inside TRUCK’s +15 Project Window and is a continual reference to the passer-by. Comprised of hundreds of minimally made god’s eyes to resemble a flock or swarm of an unknown and ambiguous species and activated by motion detectors, this interactive installation mimics the viewer while giving off a feeling of constant and fleeting observation.  


Sally Raab received a BFA in drawing from the Alberta College of Art + Design in 2010, and currently resides in Calgary, AB. Philadelphia grown, she maintains a multidisciplinary art practice dealing with notions of the abstracted human body, and has been known to curate the odd show. Her work has been exhibited in Canada and the United States, most recently at ArtScape Gibraltar Point in Toronto, ON and with M:ST 7 in Calgary, AB.
