21st Century Nesting Practices

I am extremely happy to say that the McMullen Gallery  at the University of Alberta Hospital will be hosting my exhibition 21st Century Nesting Practices!  This iteration of the work will feature a new video piece, and a soundscape created from a combination of my own field recordings and a selection of recordings from the… Read More

Spring Signs

It seems growth and change are afoot in almost every way imaginable. Last night, the province in which I live held a remarkable election, with results that have transformed the political landscape here – and certainly made history.
