Toronto Nuit Blanche 2014

Shlomi Greenspan and I will be presenting our piece Untitled (It’s Almost a One-Liner) Saturday October 4th during Toronto’s Nuit Blanche.

The Queen St. West B.I.A., in association with MuchFACT and Much, is presenting its sixth annual all-night exhibition of art and music by Canadian independent artists. Out of Site 2014 features six Nuit Blanche independent projects curated by Earl Miller, which consider the theme of  humour in public art.

Hamilton Arts & Letters Magazine has published an insightful article by Paul Rocca about Untitled (It’s almost a one-liner). You can read it here.

Back to School

sarah_beckHeather Saunders has posted an interview on her blog, Artist in Transit, in which we discuss my time in residence at the International Space University.

You can read about my time in space here.

This summer I was the first Artist in Residence at the 27th Space Studies Program (SSP).

While acting as Rocket Artist, or resident Space Oddity, I re-imagined the Pioneer Plaque. Originally created in 1972 for inclusion on the Pioneer 10 launch, the Pioneer Plaque was a pictoral message to possible extraterrestrial life that may intercept it. Art for aliens…talk about a challenge!

Rendez-Vous

Back in 2012 when I was getting ready for Nuit Blanche, a TV crew from Rendez-vous followed us around for months filming the process of putting together such a large installation. The episode aired in July on CBC’s ICI ARTV.

Museum for the End of the World

Postcards from the End is a commissioned project that will be featured at Toronto city hall as part of 2012 Nuit Blanche’s Museum for the End of the World. Museum for the End of the World, curated by Janine Marchessault and Michael Prokopow, is a provocative, critical rumination about end times and a world in transition.
