I have a single channel, silent video piece called Octopus Garden being shown in

Digital Carnival at the Richmond International Film & Media Arts Festival 2013

on Saturday, July 27, 2013 at Richmond Cultural Centre in Minoru Park. Octopus Garden is a video projection on sand that acts as a screen and ocean floor, where the public can walk on the bottom of the ocean! Digital Carnival is a free outdoor event in the park in front of Richmond Art Gallery.

I've been shooting a lot of video of water for the past couple of years and have been using images of it in one form or another for various projects and productions. Drift is a new piece, designed as a single channel loop video based on the concepts of global warming and desertification on the planet. I shot it with an HTC One cell phone and edited in post production. To see the whole video, go HERE

In early June, LocoMotoArt received word that we were being awarded artist in residency at Aberthau Mansion - West Point Grey through Park Field House Studio Residency, Vancouver Park Board. 16 of the 20 members of the Collective will be installed from June 1, 2013 - Jan 1, 2015!

 

For my personal residency, I will be researching underwater lighting, LED and Electroluminescent lighting and making outdoor installations on Aberthau Mansion's beautiful grounds. I will also be conducting community engagement workshops, where I will guide participants in making installations with light. There be exhibitions at Aberthau Mansion and other community centres, guest artists and lecturers, projects with other artists in residence in other City fieldhouses, dinners, talks and workshops.

In June, I had the pleasure to curate five artists into an independent show production, 2000 Meilen Unter Dem Meer | 2000 Miles Under the Sea, named after headline performer Trautonia Capra's newly released CD. I was inspired to continue my video work involving water by creating original footage for 3/5 artists for their performances! In addition to show curation and production, I had the pleasure to host a talk/demo by Trautonia and myself in conjunction with the performance.
