Like most of us, Calgary born artist Maskull Lasserre doesn’t read the manual. But unlike any of us, he puts them in a vice grip and makes extraordinary art out of them. Carved from old software manuals, Lasserre’s Incarnate (Three Degrees of Certainty II) is a unique piece of work that exudes great innovation and skill.

On his inspiration:

“My inspiration is the unexpected potential of the most common everyday experiences, objects and materials. I am moved by the way the most mundane things can manifest all kinds of human care, worry, expectation and hope. Often this comes with a sort of black sense of humour.”

Obviously it must all mean something. The death of extensive knowledge? The demise of basic learning tools? Does it represent the causalities of a hyperactive technological landscape in which something is constantly being rendered obsolete? We thought Lasserre would put our questions to rest with a sound explanation but instead he reinforced them and urged us to create our meaning.

“My work is really an offering to the audience. I am happy for them just to experience it, and hopefully enjoy the journey of discovery that it has to offer. What I put into the work is what interests me, but I know it is not necessarily what the viewer gets out of it. What the audience takes away with them [is] really between them and the work.”
