“Private Language” is a project by one of my favourite artists, Malin Gabriella Nordin. She recently invited eleven children, ages 3 – 5, to interpret a collection of her sculptures:

“I met with each child individually for an hour to discuss the collection: what they thought the sculptures looked like, if there was a story, which one they liked the most, etc. I asked each one of them if they felt the collection was missing something and if so could they draw the missing piece. I also asked them if the sculptures were placed in the right order or if they wanted to rearrange them, which all except for one did. The upcoming months I will interpret their drawings and make their missing pieces into new sculptures and paintings.”

I usually include a handful of images, but I’ve included 30 images here. They were too beautiful not to post. I guess it’s kind of obvious that I love this project.

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.
