CAVS alumnus Don Ritter (SMVisS ’88) is currently exhibiting an architectural projection, titled Wet • Montreal. The projection will begin 30 minutes after sunset and go until 1am, running every day until August 22.

Wet is a close-up of slow-moving water, occasionally interrupted by water bubbles and splashing. Water has symbolized various concepts since antiquity, including the first form of matter, birth, everything that exists, and the source and potentiality of everything possible.[1] Wet was first exhibited as a video-sound installation in 2017 at the Musée d’art et d’histoire Saint-Brieuc in France. The projection of Wet in Montréal is its premiere in Canada and its first exhibition as an architectural projection.
