Week 50: Freedom in Failure

January 25, 2011

Week 50

Week 50: This week’s lyrics come from Erin C (“Failure” by Martin Sexton) and the photo is from Cimetière du PèreLachaise in Paris (where Jim Morrison is buried), where flowers and memorials completely cover a plot (or more than one, its crowded in there and there were a lot of flowers). I have no idea who it was all for.


CANOE: Visual Blogging

January 24, 2011

This last week I had the pleasure of attending Workshop West’s CANOE Festival– a week long theatre festival- and blogging on the shows I saw. What started out as a joke, led to me doing a different kind of blog– visual blogs.

I tried to choose a medium that was appropriate to each event: My Name Is was a reading of a play still in development; Sound Machine incorporated a bunch of coloured, layered scribbles; TUMIT, a visual collage; and for Absurdesque, only an animated gif could do. I urge you to check out all the blogs (and you can also see mine below) and check out the Edmonton theatre scene… some amazing work is being showcased in our city ALL the time!

week 49

Week 49. Less than a month left to go and I change the parameters? That sounds… just like me. I asked my lovely friends at #yegmusicclub (and really, anyone on Twitter that wanted to join in) for some song lyrics that resonated with them. And I didn’t tell them what I was doing…

This week I start with Heather’s suggestion: “God’s got a sick sense of humor and when I die I expect to find Him laughing” from Blasphemous Rumours by Depeche Mode, and two photos from Ottawa. I also revived my design school crush on Bodoni. You may be seeing more of it…

Week 48

Week 48: Trying out the diptych format again. Blurry late night photo from Granville Island in Vancouver coupled with an architectural feature of the Capitol in Austin, Texas.

Bonus, this is totally on time. Yay me 🙂

Week 47

Week 47: An old aerial photograph of a farm that somehow means something to my family history… was it the farm that my grandparents and mother stayed at when they first arrived in Canada (from Denmark)? Or was this a family farm IN Denmark (it clearly wasn’t taken that long ago, there ARE cars in the image…)? I’ll have to check with my ma and get back to you all. I tilt-shifted the photo in any case, and layered textures (including one of vintage wallpaper.. mmmm) to create a look like this photo is burning and revealing other layers in the photograph (does that make sense?).
