Synesthesia

September 20, 2014

As those of you who have spent time looking at my imagery, moving and not, have likely picked up on an attention to detail and elements of precision.  This is something I hold most true, that no video cut is ever 1 frame off (1/24th of a second), and nothing extra is an image.  Along this path, the music I choose to marry my images when assembled in slideshow or video form, is also precise.  The combination of two senses receiving the same emotional information yields a response in the active viewer/listener that is what really in art I think we are all trying to achieve.  An amplification of the emotions, the connections, the understanding of things in our vision and our minds, a synthesis of senses.

Here are a few slideshows and videos of the recent past exploring various elements of what drives my work and vision and that of our film production company, Dendrite Studios. We recently launched a new site and look for Dendrite Studios, bringing in the spirit of the raven and the creativity they derive into our brand of making kickass videos.

A Failure of Reason

A couple of months ago a new magazine started.  I got word of it early on and knew I wanted to be involved.  It’s called Mountain Life Annual is published by the same rad people behind Mountain Life Coast Mountains, but with a jump into a new league.  MLA has a select number of partners, companies that get the rights to have one ad in the magazine, or book as it is more appropriately referred to.  Leslie Anthony is at the helm of the editing and he is about as good or better than anyone for the role.  Expect big things from this annual book. Fortunately for me, in the first issue (currently at the printers), there is an article about the opponents to the proposed Enbridge Northern Gateway pipeline – tanker route, and included in these colourful characters is Norm Hann.  Norm was the star of STAND film, and as such I had a plethora of beautiful and often alternative type imagery that usually would find no home.  Mountain Life Annual gave them a home.  In this article four of my favourite images are shared as spreads, along with a few spots.  Check out this mag when it comes out, because if this is an indication on the quality, then it is going to be premium coffee table fodder.
