At the invitation of Contemporary Calgary, i spent the day exploring Calgary’s 1967 Brutalist Planetarium building in the final days before slated renovations (as part of its transition in to a contemporary gallery space). Here are a few photographs of that day of exploration …

 

I’m thrilled to have artwork alongside Keegan Starlight, Amanda Fox & George Webber as part of “Keeping the Circle Strong Sharing our Culture: Celebrating National Aboriginal Day” (part of Aboriginal Awareness Week Calgary) — thank you Tamara Cardinal for the opportunity!

Had a lovely afternoon chatting with Pratim Sengupta and Alycia Wilson in the Mind, Matter & Media Lab yesterday — our wide-ranging conversations on ontology, classroom structures and grading, poetry, code and improvisation will be edited in to a YouTube video. While we were chatting, i constructed a large-scale visual poem, letting the conversations build upon the gestural creation . . .

The 50th piece in an ongoing series of visual transcriptions of every page of Finnegans Wake – a rendering of Joyce’s book of the dark‬. Each piece is created – graphite on paper – using an artistic technique called “blind contour” whereby the artist looks at the subject matter and NOT at the page he is creating (thus emphasizing hand-eye coordination and dedicated observation); blind-contour drawings often produce off-kilter depictions as an exercise in artistic weight-training.

These readings/writings echo Jame Joyce’s infamous blackboards and over-sized drafts during the creation of Finnegans Wake — my texts are records of readings.
