Daniele Hopkins & Kyle Duffield
Hopkins Duffield is a Toronto-based collaborative duo consisting of Daniele Hopkins and Kyle Duffield. HopDuff explores a variety of mediums, including audio, video, installation, electronics, gaming, and performance. The two of them collectively draw from experiences working within the Toronto arts, education, gaming, and maker communities, and have been exploring ways to combine both new and familiar mediums with artistically technological practices to create fun and interactive projects. While light-hearted fun and blog-logged technical exploration are at the core of their projects, they also approach their collaboration as a vehicle for examining deeper concerns, curiosities, and wonderment for how technology influences our behaviour and interacts with prevailing understandings of our society’s functionality.
