Many skies…

On this exact date last year I met Ingi and Móri. Two arctic foxes living at the Melrakkasetur (Arctic Fox Centre) in Su∂avik, Iceland. In the beautiful Westfjords. It has taken me quite some time to readjust back into my Toronto costume, if you will. Going through the daily motions…  My partner and I own… Continue reading Many skies…

Āyatana: sense sphere

Happy #CVSunday! Meanwhile,  Several years ago I stumbled upon the Ayatana Research Program : Artist residencies (fully immersed in Science) that take place in different location around Canada. There was one taking place in Nova Scotia that sounded incredible- I applied and was accepted!

Graceful : Time

via Daily Prompt: Graceful Thanks for visiting- May I suggest listening to the following as you read and ponder the images here?  Autumnal colours found in the Ascophyllum nodosum, Fucus spiralis aka Bladderwrack/Fucus vesiculosus. In the past I’ve dreamt of harvesting seaweeds…  I find the worlds here graceful in their ruggedness. The young, raw nature. (repeat) Geological… Continue reading Graceful : Time

Lots and lots of playing and wanting me to pet him and scratch his belly, and behind his ears, while Ingi went into the den. I took Ambre (volunteer from France) down to the… Continue reading waterfalls & calcite crystals

Met up with my Icelandic language teacher Thordis (ÞÓRDÍS) for a kaffi at Cafe Haiti- where she introduced me to Kristín Ómarsdóttir and Oddny Eir Ævarsdóttir. Both authors, interesting people and sadly we only had small talk! I… Continue reading Living in the Westfjords

Patreon plus

Hey there, The studio is going to be taken over September through Feb 2017. While this is fantastic news (for me) there are still so many ends to tie up, hidden expenses, etc., that I felt the need to reboot my Patreon pages. It feels a bit like Artist food stamps, or even Artist (medic)Aide… Continue reading Patreon plus

Augmenting reality

From Old Norse auga, from Proto-Germanic *augô, from Proto-Indo-European *h₃ekʷ- ‎(“eye; to see”). Cognates include Latin oculus Since early Spring I have been messing around with Unity and Arduino (actually I have been playing with Arduino for a couple years…) slowly building knowledge towards a new iteration of Wonderlandish combined with the Air We Breath. The idea that the fundamental act of observing… Continue reading Augmenting reality
