    wow… lately i’ve been thinking a lot about the digital life we’re getting into… i work all day long on the computer and when i get home i usually keep surfing the internet… looking for images, videos and music..

    for the last couple of months i have been painting with difrent stuff, wrigting.. even skating (and getting hurt doing so).. but still i can´t let go the feeling that most of the time we take for granted that our lives are….digital

    gives me an odd feeling… (don’t know if i get myself clear)

      ya, there are a lot of interesting things that are happening to the population as a whole (i would imagine) because of the big shift to digital things. The whole move is interesting. I think patience and gratitude have gotten cluttered. it is tricky to try and explain, but I at least agree with you there.

      I wonder how long people will hold on to these processes, and other physical mediums, like vinyl and film. I imagine, and I hoooope, that they’ll continue indefinitely. Any thoughts from people who are more educated than me?

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.
