    jesus, these are insane. Though I have to say they look incredible in that location, if they were in a completely white wall modern gallery I don’t know that I would be as moved, I love the juxtaposition between the old and new in these

    That is Tate Britain in London. People were allowed to lay down underneath the one suspended from the ceiling – took a picture of my friend doing it.

      Nick – I saw this installation when I was in London last Autumn and I must say, it is very impressive and frightening. “Terribly interesting” definitely applies. I’d like to see a video of how they installed the plane hanging from the ceiling, or how they even got them into he museum.

    There might be a film on here: http://channel.tate.org.uk/ the Tate are pretty good for putting films out on their shows.

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.
