Starting on January 1, 2009 I will be posting 2-9 photos each day for the duration of the new year. The images will be taken between 9 am (-2) to 9 pm(+ or -2) and and will be posted before I go to sleep. The 2-9 images will document whatever and anything that is representative of that period of the day. The -2 in the morning gives me leeway to start shooting at 7 am and the + or – 2 in the evening gives me an option to shoot up to 11 pm or finish at 7 pm. Using the idea of the number 2 represents the #2 in 2009 which really has no real connection nor significance but it will just give me more options to play with as I want to shoot mainly with natural light. I am attempting to make a visual documentation or diary made of images without any text. This will allow the viewer or reader to freely interpret how I see the world and live my life. The images can risk being rather mundane to the potential of being really fun but it should truly reflect how I am seeing things at that moment. The challenge is not to consciously present the best or exciting photographs but the most honest ones. This personal project will be challenging as it requires a bit of discipline to maintain its legitimacy. Will be seeing you all very soon!
So here we go again, gearing up for another election in Canada. Now, the question is does one vote for the best possible candidate or does one vote strategically? I am hoping somehow that there will be a positive outcome (that means Harper and the Conservatives lose this election) but I’m becoming more and more pessimistic. Not sure why this country is leading towards such a right wing direction. How could we as Canadians continue to allow a government with an agenda that has been so closely allied with George W. Bush and not respond negatively? Has he not set an example of incompetence and war mongering already?Not saying the other parties or leaders are that much better but why are continuing down a path of greed and destruction with Stephen Harper. His cuts in culture are absolutely horrible. He might say that his government has increased arts spending yet this is because he has lumped other social programs that were cut into an already unstable arts budget. They are not telling the whole truth so don’t let them fool you again!
Many of us has asked ourselves how was it possible that America voted Bush in for a second term when we appear to be heading on the same path with the Tories?
Lets be smart and vote him out!
Here is an excerpt of the research in February 2008 of the new piece called Bloodletting and Other Pleasant Things that will premier on October 23, 2008 with the Dancemakers Dance Company in their studios. Will be making lots of changes and improve on many things. Got some great ideas and can’t wait to work on them in September and show in Oct.
