Talking, Tomorrow …

Just back from a whirlwind trip to Vancouver with my friend & collaborator Scott Smallwood – we installed Macromareal(redux) at Emily Carr for a month-long exhibition, and spoke to some of the students there.

Gros Morne 2.0

I had a great few days out in Gros Morne National Park! It was wonderful to be back there – I hadn’t realized just how much I’d missed the place and the people.
