Well it has been a long time since there was much happening over here. I'm living in Helsinki right now and making some necessary upgrades to my website. Hopefully more activity happening soon. I am updating my website in a very sloppy manner, so if an image is uncredited or unclear don't take offense. You can let me know the error and I'll fix it from there.

David Frankovich is moving to Finland in August. I plan to join him in January 2014. Right now I have no new projects on the go or upcoming. I am taking a longer, official break from art. Feel free to ask me about existing work and timelines for new work. Exhibition requests are still welcome with reasonable notice.

Not really sure what to say in the news department. The winter has been harsh; really harsh. I have also decided that the next step in my creative needs to be a bit more focused on upgrading some of my current skills and learning new ones through workshops and continuing education opportunities, and spend the money that would be studio rent on that. Plus, David is doing interviews/auditions for grad school and there's a real possibility we'll be moving come the fall. Minus the studio means I can pay off some debt a little faster and have a more realistic chance of traveling with him. So my Toronto studio space is opening up! As you can read from the previous post it's in Toronto in the Bloor/Lansdowne area. Contact me for more details.

Things have been going alright. Relatively up and down, and I may write a dedicated blog post explaining that. For now, I'd like to announce that this Thursday, August 30th, Toronto's only bicycle-led gallery hop Art Spin is stopping at my shared studio space. Yes, a school night. Also the last Art Spin studio tour of the year. The biking tour will be passing by the studio sometime around 7:15pm. My colleagues Robert Hengeveld, Marcia Huyer, Nathalie Quagliotto, and Erika James will also have some work up for the tour. There has been talk of a sound/performance project happening on site as well.If you haven't been by the studio already it's at 58 Wade Ave, Unit 10 - near Bloor and Lansdowne.

I was a guest at The Governor General’s Awards in Visual and Media Arts 2012. It was a really interesting experience and I'm glad I was able to attend to help honor the winners. Special thanks to FADO Performance Art Inc for the board member development opportunity to be there.

The Toronto Arts Council has provided some funding to me to work on a new series of work. Thank you sincerely for this support. Their logo is on my thank-yous page. For a taste of things to come, watch this. There will actually be no fire involved and I wouldn't even touch this rad project with a 10-foot pole. But think horses....

I am premiering a brand new work on Friday November 18th 2011, at XPACE Cultural Centre. It's been driving me a little crazy but it's coming together nicely. Here's a link to XPACE's website.

Holy lag...long time no update. After a crippling slow summer, I am happy to tell you I'm preparing for a solo show that opens in Hamilton THIS FRIDAY January 8th. 7pm-11pm. More details are here
Responsive Space opens at Lonsdale Gallery, a small group show I'm in with Stanzie Tooth, Stacey Sproule and Alex McLeod. Alex made this website, and Stacey and Stanzie are both awesome too. It's a really unexpected show for a commercial space, and I'm not just saying that because I'm in it.

Pearl Chen and I just did the Artist's Project in Toronto with our CFC project. Check out her link here: http://karma-laboratory.com/node/15
It's here.....http://bellpayphonelabs.com/.....and the CFC is over.
Thank you Thank you Thank you Toronto Arts Council!
Oh shoot! I should of updated soooner! Friday January 9th was the opening of mis(place)d in Toronto where you'll see the crying cat for maybe the last time! I will be on the panel discussion on January 21st though. So feel free to come out and grill me then about why I make cats cry....
Production started at the CFC, and this project is going to be awesome. I'm collaborating with http://karma-laboratory.com/
I moved, and I was published in HART (http://www.kunsthart.org/) from Belgium. Not my best work, admittably, and I'll blame the election for it.
I still continue to blog...
I just finished representing InterAccess at Harbourkids GEEKOUT this Thanksgiving Weekend. Hopefully I can post a link to the photos soon.
Until February 2009, I will be a resident at the Canadian Film Centre in the Media Lab. Also, I am in a show that opens September 13th at 381 Redbull Projects, a gallery sponsored by yes, Redbull! It's a show with 5 other including Simone Jones. On display until October 25th!
Finally done hybernating, in time for the Images Festival and other things. Fuse Magazine (www.fusemagazine.org) launched their April "Creative Cities?" issue featuring my Short-Fuse "Waiting for the Dust to Settle."
Also wrote something for the InterAccess' AXON blog about CopyCamp (http://copycamp.ca) that happened in Late April in Toronto. I had the pleasure to attend and reconcile/embrace my relationship with policy and intellectual property.
I'll be at the Art Gallery of Mississauga February 5th and 6th presenting the PG version of "I wanna Make Electronic Art" to grade nine students from Cawthra Park Secondary School, for the "Mongrel Media" exhibition featuring Kristen Keller of http://www.kristenkeller.org and her army of robots.
February 13th I'll be presenting the PG-14+ version of "I wanna Make Electronic Art" at InterAccess Media Arts Centre in Toronto.
February 14th is Valentine's Day and FADO will be delivering Valentine-Oh-Grams to lovers across the GTA. I'll be doing some of the Valentine-oh-Phone grams, but of course.
