Project Description:
20,000 years of cinematic history condensed into the length of a short feature film. Comprised entirely of establishing shots from cinema and television, Timeline begins in the year 17,000 BC and ends in 2805 AD.

Biography:
Dave Dyment is a Toronto-based artist whose practice includes audio, video, photography, performance, writing and curating, and the production of artists’ books and multiples. His work mines pop culture for shared associations and alternative meanings, investigating the language and grammar of music, cinema, television and literature, in order to arrive at a kind a folk taxonomy of a shared popular vocabulary. Past projects include homemade LSD and a video work condensing every known disaster film down to the moments of destruction and arranging them geographically across twenty monitors.

Dyment’s work has been exhibited across Canada and internationally, in New York City, Philadelphia, Chicago, London, Dublin and Varna, Bulgaria. His work is found in many private and corporate collections, and in the libraries of the Art Gallery of Ontario (AGO), Toronto, and National Gallery of Canada, Ottawa. It can also be heard on the YYZ anthology Aural Cultures edited by Jim Drobnick (2004) and New Life After Fire (For Tom Thomson), a collaboration with Lee Ranaldo of Sonic Youth, published by Art Metropole (2003). He is represented by MKG127, Toronto.
