I'VE BEEN SPUN : ARTSPIN PT. 2

So i've officially been on an artspin after avoiding it for so long.
It seems like the scheduling Gods were willing to let me have a free thursday night.

The first artspin of the summer included stops at the Birch Liberalato and Diaz Contemporary galleries as well as a special tour of Walnut Studios.

I was previously introduced to the Walnut by one of its residents, Marlen James, as we shot her Pedal Pin Up pics on their patio.

The performance artists included the Radiant Brass Ensemble (from my previous post) which provided the traffic jam like ambience for the rotating interaction between horns, bells and bicycles.

We were left in the dark at The Theatre Centre to allow our sense of hearing to be immersed in the vocal talents of Charlotte Mundy and Alex Samaras.



After wandering through the forbidden skipping of class and honing my spitball skills, I mingled through the masses and stripped down school history to find myself once again immersed in the darkness.

Pushed against a classroom wall I found myself face to face with movers and players who engaged in a duel.

Leaving the Artscape Shaw St centre a cool summer breeze and the heat escaping from the asphalt embraced my two wheels and I melted into the night.

The distant ringing of bicycle bells beckoning for another ride.
