My bio

Equinox Vigil

Each year on Autumn Equinox, people of all ages and beliefs gather in historic Union Cemetery. There, surrounded by fresh flowers, fluttering prayer flags and glowing lanterns, they join members of Calgary’s vibrant arts community in creating bittersweet rituals of remembrance and reflection. Inspiring art installations, video projections, and shrines created by professional artists form the heart of the Equinox Vigil experience.

Digital Shrine

Digital Shrine consists of a specially designed installation where the public may write tributes and messages with pen and paper – words they wish they’d said, heartfelt thoughts they carry with them, or simply the names of the dead. The tributes are entered into a software program (developed specifically for this application) on a laptop, and this text is projected onto a screen, scrolls slowly and is visible to the public. The words light up the night sky and are like credits at the end of a film only this time people stay to watch them!

OX: A Crash Course on Loving Calgary

OX: A Crash Course on Loving Calgary is about sharing love for our City and great places to see through a down-loadable walking audio tour.

OX is a project to motivate and mobilize people to go out and capture the love of our City using participatory media art. It is an interactive, community mapping, down-loadable audio tour that will showcase Calgary OX spots as seen through the eyes and ears of Calgarians. Erecting the OX flag, citizens are recording their ideal spot of Calgary.

The project began in March of 2009, the Chinese Zodiac Year of the OX with a motto of “I persevere”.
