360 Riot Walk
International Symposium for Electronic Art / ISEA2020, Montréal
February 10, 2019, Portland Art Museum
Bob’s Salon / Vancouver, Crawling, Weeping, Betting
February 21, 2014, Unit/Pitt Gallery, Vancouver
Presented by battery opera performance and Unit Pitt Projects, David McIntosh and Chris Bose. I read a new piece of writing about memory and taste, and unveiled a bottle of 1980 Black Tower, which David McIntosh who is also a sommelier, opened, tasted and immediately spat out into a corner of the gallery. The formerly sweet, formerly popular German white wine was highly oxidized and almost drinkable (well, not really). We then passed the bottle around the audience; there were few takers. Dancers Daina Ashbee, Diego Romero and Hailey McCloskey, and musicians Max Murphy, Ben Brown, Russel Scholburg then improvised based on the story. Photos by Yvonne Chew and Kirk Tougas.
Talk at Sam Sullivan’s Public Salon
Nov. 13, 2013, Vancouver Playhouse
Public Salons, organized by Sam Sullivan and Lynn Zanatta, continue the tradition originated by the late and beloved Abraham Rogatnick whereby speakers are invited to share something they are passionate about. There were eight of us that evening who presented to a sold-out crowd at the Vancouver Playhouse, including an architect, musician, writer, CEO, and activist. Presented by the Global Civic Public Society.
