    All I have to say is, check out his website too if you have two minds and only one of them has been blown.

    I enjoy viewing these and knowing they are made of reclaimed wood is even better. Great craftsmanship as well…

    It is definitely worth checking out this guys website, being able to see larger images of his work really brings the pieces to life. The burning log is incredible. I can’t imagine the amount of time it takes to figure out where each piece of wood should go. I’ve never seen anything like it, it’s genius and I’d love to own one of his sculptures. There are too many amazing pieces to choose a favourite but I must mention the diamond, it’s spot on, you couldn’t fail to know what it was yet when you look more closely, you appreciate the time that’s gone in to get it right. I love the perfectionism of the craft.

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.
