NextBest - Invite Prelim03
✦ Bonjour toot le monde! ✦

I’m having an opening December 11th at pfoac221 for a show called Next Best.

I’ve been working hard on some small sculptures, some big sculptures and some sounds to go with them. There *might* be thematic snacks involved as well. I would love to see you there!

Cuddlr

Cuddlr is an idea I had while being silly at a dinner party.  Charlie Williams made it real and I worked out the aesthetic side. The app garnered considerable press on release, intriguing some and enraging others. Who knew cuddling could be so divisive?

“There’s a real need for this… we don’t get enough touch in our daily lives.” Salon.com
“No sane adult wants to cuddle with a stranger. Period.” Dan Savage

Further reading: New York Times, MTV, The Telegraph.

I don’t have a mobile phone, so until we develop Cuddlr for landline I’m going to have to find my cuddles by other means.

☀ Spring-ing ☂

Just returned from a few months of living, working, bike-riding, pub-dwelling and lamb-viewing amongst the green valleys of England. Now starting my second spring back in Montreal, where magnolias are popping all over again.

All to say: I’ve had a great couple of months and have worked on some nice projects. There’s a few new things to see here, here and here.

Also, Starting from Scratch (published by Owl Kids) is now available in stores! I feel really happy with how it all came together – Sarah Elton provided a brilliant manuscript to work with and I had the chance to work the insightful John Crossingham as editor once again.

Hope you’re enjoying this new season.
