Somewhere Strange at Roadside Attractions

If you are in Toronto, check out my installation Somewhere Strange in the window of Roadside Attractions at 911 Davenport Road. On until September 30th.

Somewhere Strange is a mosaic of postcards presented with a haiku poem, which reads as follows:

You are somewhere strange.
Do not be surprised if you
Sleep through the alarm.

The collection of postcards addresses the disparity between how spaces are represented and idealized, versus the visceral experience of passing through them. The haiku poem is meant to add another layer of meaning to the postcards, asking you to wonder about the nature of reality whilst looking at images from many different places. Together, these elements form a simple expression of the sublime strangeness of the world, where you may reflect on dreams, reality, familiarity and the unexpected.

Kickstarter Project for The Arctic Circle Residency

Hey everybody! I'm doing a Kickstarter campaign to fundraise for a trip to the Arctic I'm doing later this year. I've been invited to participate in The Arctic Circle program, an artist residency where you sail on a Barquentine tall ship (aka pirate ship) for three weeks around Svalbard. It is the trip of a lifetime and I am insanely excited for it! If you can chip in a few bucks, there are some awesome rewards listed on the campaign page, and please feel free to share the link far and wide! Thank you!
