My gift this Mother’s Day was venturing out on our first camping trip of the season. It was nice to be out together exploring the world though a toddlers eyes. The footage is pretty rough – partly because we discovered some greasy fingerprints on the lens – but we were able to capture our Munchkin and each other in a few sweet moments that we are already grateful to remember.
Late this fall our little family moved into a housing co-op in our neighbourhood. We are slowly discovering the joys of living in such a supportive community. This weekend it was our Landscaping party and we had members turn out in record numbers to lend a hand to make our community spaces more livable. I was able to film the event and – I hope – capture the spirit of our community.
Isn’t this succulent planter sweet? Another little video “How To” video for West Coast Gardens.
Happy Easter from myself and from West Coast Gardens! I’ve started to do some feature writing and videos for this lovely greenhouse and garden store. It’s a beautiful destination just outside of White Rock. The staff is so kind, friendly and knowledgeable you are sure to find perfect plants no matter what you are looking for. What I really love about West Coast Gardens is their focus on Education – take a look at their upcoming classes. You might see me there!
This fall we moved into a housing co-op. We love our new community. This little video is just a taste of what co-op life is all about: neighbours helping each other build their community.
This fall I worked on a series of six videos for the Museum of Vancouver’s Exhibition PLAY HOUSE – The Architecture of Daniel Evan White. It’s a privilege to share these vignettes of the spaces and the people that inhabit them. The video above is one of my favourites, but you can find the others on my Vimeo page and here.
More about the Exhibit from the Museum of Vancouver:
PLAY HOUSE – The Architecture of Daniel Evan White
at the Museum of Vancouver, October 17 2013 – March 30 2014
Architect Daniel Evan White produced a remarkably consistent oeuvre of iconic homes in British Columbia during a 50-year career. His unique interpretation of building form and landscape challenged the traditional images of house and home and their relationship to the natural environment.
PLAY HOUSE: The Architecture of DANIEL EVAN WHITE ventures through the architect’s mind, hands and eyes to explore the creative process that transforms the house from a simple desire into a constructed reality. A number of selected projects, including the exhibition space itself, explore the territory between the abstract and the real: the space between the architect’s vision and the lived-in domestic environment.
