Summer Light

In the spirit of unconventional art practices — always bring your wind-up flash-light to help out as the sun goes down on the bus, SiteFactory: Mobile Art Platform, with Leah Weinstein. Thanks Joni Low for the photo.

Artists talk on unconventional practices

The wondrous view from my seat on the SiteFactory: Mobile Art Platform's bus, with artists talks by prOphecy sun, Jay White, and readings by Kristoff Steinruck and myself. It was a lot of fun, I liked sitting in the bus amid the changing evening sky, listening to thoughts on art and practice.

Look out for SiteFactory's forthcoming Indiegogo campaign that will help pay for installing a solar electricity supply — because yes, we did run out of juice for the projector with the small generator. Nevertheless, I loved sitting in the dark dusk of evening light and the beautiful city sky. Thanks to the attentive and engaged audience who came out to find the bus and to Leah Weinstein for SiteFactory: Mobile Art Platform.

Granville & Robson Street installation shots

Here are a variety of shots of the Barnacle City installation sent in by a variety of folk. Thanks Dan Bull, Sharon Bayly, Anne Riley, Leah Weinstein and others for the photos.

Barnacle City Installed

At the corner of Robson and Granville Streets in Vancouver. We waited a while before Barnacle City played. The anticipation was a curious delight and then it unexpectedly came on. More photos of the other venues will be posted soon!

SiteFactory's first dinner!

On June 3, 2016, the first bus warming dinner was held at Leah Weinstein's SiteFactory with the beautiful backdrop of Spanish Banks, and a glorious, fresh, 5-star vegetarian meal courtesy of Guest Chef Jason Feehrer. Be sure to check SiteFactory's website, under 'Submissions' to send in your proposals for activities with the bus!

Watched over by a young eagle

A great day on April 10, 2016, working with my cinematographer, effects director and collaborator John Fukushima, and blessed by a young eagle who hung about near us while we worked. I always enjoy working with John, and this project is for my tiny action summer blockbuster, a commission for the City of Vancouver, coming soon to a big screen somewhere near you.

Reconnecting

Welcome to my new website! This one will be agile and robust, as I look forward to reconnecting with old and new friends through a variety of media, activities, projects and relational engagements : ).
