Home and away

After a short visit to Liverpool to prepare the new installation of Iconic Site, we're finally about to go back to Calgary to get the Visual Language Project started and continue our involvement in the design of Laycock Park.
For the VLP we put together a multi-disciplinary team consisting of:
-Yan Olivares, architect, co founder of Yes architects
-Emlyn Firth, graphic designer
-Matt Baker, an artist with a good knowledge of strategic organisation of art programmes
-Eric Laurier, Social Geographer
-and Bert Van Duin, water engineer extraordinaire

Back in the studio

After a couple of weeks away we're back in the studio.
The first task is to conclude Odd sympathies. With John Metcalf we've edited a series of miniatures out of the recordings to share the potential of these audio walks. Alongside the miniatures we are also creating a map/score to allow people who missed the performance to follow the composed itinerary. Both will be available from our website and Artes Mundi's as well as a few other ones.
