    Wonderful images.
    It’s ironic that he calls himself ‘Paul Paper’
    Have you heard of the project:
    ‘It could be me but it’s actually Paul Paper”

  • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

    wow that is weird – some really great stuff submitted to that project

  • http://www.beautifuldecay.com sasha

    Oh yeah! We posted this stuff a couple months ago-

    Like this stuff Kate Copeland did…
    But we were confused about the project exactly…are they all Paul Paper or is it a project he organized? Hmmm….
    Any thoughts to solving this mystery would be appreciated.

  • Melissa

    The second theory would make him a bit of a narcissist and it’s definite that the artwork was submitted by a variety of artists.
    I believe that Paul Paper – the mysterious artist – heard of this project. Found it insightful and saw some truth in it. He might feel undeserving of the publicity he is receiving. Like they say “taking up another artist’s space”

    i was lucky enough to be asked to contribute to “could be me” by paul himself. it is a really neat project, seeing how that sentence is interpreted by artists of different principals, from illustration, to photography, to collage work- etc. i love his work and am glad you profiled him jeff. his imagery is beautiful, encapsulating a sense of wonder, vulnerability, + modesty. i just received his tiny postcards of melancholy in the mail and they made my day !

    Hm, sounds like he organized it himself then according to Jennilee?
    Guess he’s a bit of a narccist then, huh Melissa. Hahaha.

  • Melissa

    Oh, I’m so embarrassed.
    I should stop blurting out everything that comes to mind :(

  • http://www.jeffhamada.com/ jeffhamada

    hahah no i think she was agreeing – the project is cool, the sentence itself makes no sense to me either, other than it being an example of self-marketing genius.

    design for mankind revealed some extra details on the could be me project on their issue five


  • http://www.beautifuldecay.com sasha

    Haha no, yeah Jeff’s right, Im totally agreeing Melissa. Maybe I’ll start a project with a bunch of artists drawing portraits of me called….”Sasha totally rules dude!”

  • Melissa

    Well I’m glad we solved this mystery.
    Let’s all give ourselves a pat on the back,
    or start a Paul-Paper-Project for that matter,
    whatever one does to elevate one’s self-esteem. :)

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”



Heads up for anyone in the Vancouver area, our friends OURO Collective are presenting their new show featuring two works “PACE” (choreographed by OURO) and “Kaleido” (choreographed by Tentacle Tribe). Their work combines street and contemporary dance in a really unique way, and I’m excited to see this show. I’ve shot a couple of their rehearsals and have been planning a project with them in the future!

This is an event for anybody (all ages), and I especially recommend it if you’re a creative person – seeing a lot more dance shows in the past couple years has really inspired the things I’m working on in unexpected ways.

There are 3 evening shows May 5th-7th @ 7:30pm, and 1 matinee show May 8th @ 1:30pm. Advance tickets are available online here.

FYI tickets are slightly cheaper online vs at the door, and their previous show sold out and people were turned away at the door. The show has been kindly sponsored by Converse, with on-going support from Craft Academy SalonSpotlight Dance Centre and Anna Wyman School of Dance Arts.

Mind-Bending Photo Manipulations by Artist Laurent Rosset


A selection of clever photo manipulations by photographer/architect Laurent Rosset, another artist experimenting with the illusion of landscapes which seem to fold back on themselves. You may recall Aydin Büyüktas’ work “Flatland” utilized a drone to create a very similar effect.

More of Rosset’s images below.

Shit Robot – “Lose Control” Directed by Kevin McGloughlin


One of my favourite videos so far this year! Kevin McGloughlin directs this mesmerizing visual for Shit Robot’s “Lose Control” featuring Nancy Whang. Stellar editing here – a perfect fit for the track. I’d love to know how some of these effects were achieved. Watch it over on Booooooom TV.
