One more Week, and an Event!

This is the last week that 21st Century Nesting Practices is on exhibition at the McMullen Gallery. Amazing how fast the time has gone by! The exhibition closes  on Sunday February 25th; morning of the 26th, I’ll be in the gallery, packing up the work. In the mean time though – pop in if you… Read More

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
