Vancouver 2010 / Tickets Giveaway

Ok, I can’t believe I’m about to do what I’m about to do.

As you are all aware, the 2010 Olympics begin here in Vancouver this week, and if you live here, you know how difficult it has been to get tickets. Well my friends, I have tickets. And not just any tickets. I have a pair of tickets to the 2010 Olympics Men’s Hockey Semi-Finals courtesy of BC Hydro’s Power Smart Village (opens February 10th).

Hockey is the only event I really care about and I would gladly do some very bad things to go to any of the Olympic hockey games, but I’ve decided to give these tickets to you instead.

Vancouver 2010 Olympics Men's Hockey Ticket Giveaway Booooooom art blog

Want to win them?

1. Take a photo of yourself wearing a hockey jersey. You must have two thumbs up in the photo! Bonus points for vintage jerseys!

(note: bonus points are meaningless and will not increase your chances, but I will think you’re really cool and if you’re a girl maybe I’ll call you sometime).

2. Email me the photo with the subject: “HOCKEY TICKET GIVEAWAY and include the following information:

Full Name
Phone Number
Mailing Address
Email Address

    Jeff!

    My boyfriend and I live here in Vancouver, barely scraping by in this most expensive city. But we moved here from small town Alberta to do our thing – he screen-prints, just started up his own company (www.equinoxapparel.com), and I just opened a gallery with my best girls (see link). Life isn’t always easy out here, but it wasn’t always easy back home either! Like every good Albertan boy, my guy played hockey for most of his youth – driving hours to practice, jogging miles a day, living, breathing hockey. He ended up joining a band and that became his focus for a long time, but since moving to Vancouver has become all nostalgic for his hockey days – reading up on the history of the game, telling me stories about the most exciting games of all time (Canada vs. Soviet Union in the 70s), and watching the games when we can. We can’t really afford to attend the Canucks games, let alone an Olympic game – the best hockey game to be seen! But I know I would have one heck of a happy man if we could sit in that arena together. Thanks for doing this, you’ll make some lucky people totally stoked!
    Love,
    Tarah

OURO Collective Presents “PACE” and “Kaleido”

OURO-PACE-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

Rosset5

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.

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.
