Tender Circuits

Tender Circuits is the Digital Arts Resource Centre (DARC)'s online exhibition of site-specific artistic interventions, examining the potential for exchanges between the physical world and the digital realm.

DARC invited artists to participate in immersive training on AR app development, in seminars with artists who each engage with site-specific interventions in their artistic practices, and to examine the potential of mutually supportive exchanges between specific physical locations through the digital realm.

Using the concept of fungal intelligence as a springboard, artists were asked to consider the nature of the connections that encircle and extend a mycelial system and to investigate the possibility of applying fungal characteristics to human and more-than-human community building at the intersection of digital and physical spaces.

CKCU-FM partnered with DARC to produce a podcast series exploring each artist’s work.
