International technology manufacturers and tech-networks draw attention to Ace’s electronic component work

Recently, Ace’s work has garnered renewed interest outside of the contemporary art community and has been featured by European and Asian technology-based companies who manufacture and distribute electronic components or network industry professionals in the electronic technology-based sector.

European Passive Components Institute is an educational and information resource about passive components and technological information. EPCI is an online resource that is dedicated exclusively to the passive component “niche” market providing information for designers, component engineers, buyers, strategic marketers, engineers, students or anyone with an interest in these components. The term passive components refer to electrical components that do not require any form of electrical power to operate. Common examples of passive components include: resistors, inductors, and capacitors, all of which Ace incorporates into his electronic component floral work. EPCI recently posted on their blog under the headline Capacitors, resistors and inductors in contemporary art with a hyperlink to the November 2019 review of Ace’s Concordia University exhibition by CBC reporter Jessica Ka’nhehsí:io Deer “Odawa Anishinaabe artist swaps glass beads for resistors and capacitors.”

Microhm, a resistor manufacturing company based in Shenzhen, China, also posted on Ace’s work. Microhm is a leading Asian supplier of low-impedance and high-precision resistors whose products are utilized in the automotive, consumer electronics, computer and peripherals, communication, industrial automation and green energy sectors. Microhm featured on their news page an article under the title Resistors, Capacitors and Inductors in Contemporary Art that is also a précis on Jessica Ka’nhehsí:io Deer’s (CBC) “Odawa Anishinaabe artist swaps glass beads for resistors and capacitors.”
