This year marks the 30th anniversary for the infamous TED Conference which coincides with its much anticipated move to Vancouver. Installed until March 21st, between Canada Place and the Vancouver Convention Centre is the interactive suspended net sculpture Skies Painted with Unnumbered Sparks by artist Janet Echelman in collaborated with artist Aaron Koblin, of Google’s Creative Lab and design software Autodesk.
I had some time after a shoot today so I went down to
Finn Slough in Richmond. I'd heard about this "shantytown"
a few months ago and wanted to check it out. It was settled in the 1890s by some Finnish miners and loggers. An interesting bit, in keeping with Finnish tradition, one of the first buildings they constructed was a sauna. This place gives me ideas
about design/build communities. It'll be cool to go back
once everything's blooming again and see how it changes.
