Grey Matter is a series of Snapchat filters created by artist Karen Vanderborght that explores the poetic and existential potential of AR (Augmented Reality) and social media -- suggesting selfies as self-reflective mirrors informed by the wisdom of our elders. These filters, soundtracked by ACT!, were released exclusively to Snapchat in 2019 and are here now on vinyl. Beginning in 2018 -- Karen filmed and interviewed ten seniors who brought diverse and universal wisdom to some of life's biggest questions. Andrew; an Ojibwe leader who lived through the residential school program, Alf; a church organist who publicly came out as gay at 80, Anne; the first black Senator in Canada -- all the seniors provide unique and profound perspectives on life and aging. See their words, thoughts, and appearances transpose and intersect with your selfie in an edifying engagement on themes of age, memory, time, regret, and resilience.
