“MAPPING AND MARKING” ARTWORKS VIDEO PORTRAITS FOR THE CITY OF VANCOUVER

I was contracted to shoot eight short films that preview the work of a number of Vancouver artists invited to showcase performances and installations throughout Vancouver during the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Games. Artists were asked to explore the notion of “Mapping and Marking” as a way of encouraging exploration and involvement with the city, its inhabitants and the ecological, economic and social processes that shape Vancouver. In this preview, artists are asked to share their inspirations, the process of their art and their connection to the winter games. A special thank you to Producer/director Sarah Keenlyside for the opportunity to capture these stories. The films will be shown on Vancouver’s Knowledge Network over the next few months.
