AUGUST 2018 - I was invited to sail in Saint Vincent and the Grenadines aboard Diatomée; a collective residency raising awareness of ocean conservation using education, science and art. Along with Spanish underwater photographer Enric Gener, we joined owners of the boat Alex Voyer and Marianne Aventurier to explore underwater and learn about this area of the Caribbean. In this video, Enric and I speak a bit about our experience and of each other’s work. To learn more about their mission visit Diatomée’s website.
OCTOBER 17, 2018 - I was invited to speak at The Gladstone Hotel as part of an event Photo Ed Magazine organized. Pecha Kucha is a format where speakers only have 20 slides x 20 seconds/slide to share their story. It was a difficult and fun challenge.
OCTOBER 14, 2017 - “Panellists from the worlds of arts and science will explore the nature of creativity, what are its essential elements, and where the creative spark comes from. How do people conceive novel and original ideas for a sculpture, a musical score or a scientific breakthrough? What is the creative process like? Is exceptional creativity “born” or can it be nurtured? Under what conditions does creativity flourish? And last, but not least, what is the role of creativity in a healthy society? Why do we need it?
With: Atom Egoyan, one of the most celebrated contemporary filmmakers on the international scene.
