Halifax, Warped

Halifax, from the Citadel, on a sunny day a few weeks ago. My shadow in the bottom left corner. Back in Vancouver now, missing this blue sky.
Will post many more images from my trip soon!

The 40 Part Motet

I have been thinking about sound art lately, and how I might like to learn more about it. I remembered this piece by Janet Cardiff, which I saw at the MoMA in New York in 2006. I find it so amazing and inspiring.

Trying to Diversify... subject matter. Here are some images I shot around the Ross Creek Centre of landscapes, rather than seascapes. I've put then in decreasing order of preference, with my favourite first, but please tell me if you have a different favourite!

Prokudin-Gorskii continued...

So here are my first "serious" images from my Prokudin-Gorskii experiment with infrared film. I'm a bit underwhelmed. Wish I could get brighter colours out of them. (For some reason they come out very purple??) I think I will try again with regular B/W film, because it seems to come out brighter. I'd like to try one seascape as the sky gets darker in the evening, and one city scene at night. See what those look like.

By the way, here is the link once again to the original work that inspired what I am playing with here:

One more landscape picture that I've been working on. I've been concerned that these images look very similar to my ones from Iceland. Always on my toes about reinventing my work and not overdoing a concept. That said, I've been thinking about how to know when it's important to exhaust an idea as far as it will go, and when it's important to move on. Trying to do a bit of both these days.

That said, here is a documentation of sorts from a new project I've been working on. I turned my studio into a giant pinhole camera and shot some exposures from it. I have yet to find a colour printer to process the prints, but this is a view of outside, looking through the pinhole on the inside.
