Some thoughts on leaving and coming back

I am preparing to fly West this afternoon, after a busy and very productive several months in various spots in Nova Scotia. A great residency with Scott Smallwood, and new work launched in Parrsboro, at Main & Station. The start of some new and exciting collaborations with Deborah Carruthers and with Susan Tooke.  Time to… Read More

Work – finishing up some experiments in cyanotype (!), and writing a grant report. Taking a… Read More

Generosity … and Many, Many Thanks

It’s been a remarkable time; the residency and performance, the talk, the exhibition … and now that it’s all done and packed up, a little time to reflect.

Post-Performance, Pre-Exhibition

We had a marvellous time on Sunday, presenting “Macromareal Prelude: In Fog and Storm and Rain” ! Everything fell into place so beautifully – we had planned to present at the beach, but the forecast pre-empted that idea – but Plan B turned out to be so great! No regrets there! Deep thanks to all… Read More

Me, Talking about Things
