Deep Dive With Deep Space Helsinki

High impact graphic design for record label based in Helsinki, Finland.

The beginnings of my collaboration with Deep Space Helsinki has the makings of a social networking fairy tale. An unanticipated phone call from the fiance of an acquaintance of an acquaintance who felt impressed by what they saw at a gallery show of mine, forever and a half ago.

Enjoying the artistic freedom brought on by this distant connection, let's take a deep dive into a delightful cover art assignment for electronic music label Deep Space Helsinki.

Toronto Urban Photography Festival

As a contender and second place winner of the 2013 edition of the Toronto Urban Photography Festival, (http://tupf.ca/about-tupf/) I had the privilege of participating in my first gallery exhibit, displaying fine art urban photography pieces to interested art buyers and fine art aficionados.

 

In their own words

The first festival ran from March 9-23, 2013 and had work in 7 galleries, 6 urban talks, 5 workshops, and 5 photo walks. There were collaborations with Crossing Lines (UK), Humans of Toronto, Toronto Photo Walks, and Lomography Canada, and our original projects—The Disposable Camera Project (which became its own entity), and the TO Neighbourhoods Project. Our call for works had over 45 entries from all over the world including the UK, Germany, Unites States, Italy, and Canada.

The photos are up, special thanks to Radu Caracaleanu

A warm evening in October to celebrate the completion of my first summer series, accompanied by the exquisite presence of friends, family and our very special guests. Thank you all once again for coming.

For the mood of the evening, special acclaim goes to the very talented DJ Shado.

The series, presenting an archaeology of cognitive content within a certain sliver of time, will be on display at Lab Studio Design, 296 King Street East, for the remainder of the month.
