Project:Moments Intercepted

Occupation: Locative Media Artist
Location: Dartmouth, Nova Scotia

Why does this project interest me?
Why? Because I want to seize irrevocable instances, expose possible poetic manifestations into the immediate, and alter space and time, generating a third place.

Challenge: *Challenge 9: Capture summertime

A breeze, a backyard, a book, birdsong…

…today at the Melchor market, a fantastical sight. A servant girl with a birdcage on her back, full of birds. She wore her blue shawl wrapped around the cage and tied in front to hold it. The willow cage must have been very light because she was not bent over, yet it towered over her head, with turrets like a Japanese pagoda. And full birds: green and yellow, flapping about like dreams trying to escape from a skull… (The Lacuna – Barbara Kingsolver)

Seeing Bubble

Found on my walks, busted eye glass frame. First challenge set by the (re)collection Project. “Make something green”, so I reclaimed street detritus to make art, make bubbles! Bubbles are green and don’t litter or harm the environment.
