Sometimes you come across creative work that is so simple but still so innovative, and with a visual impact that strikes your gut.
Recently, I came across Nick Gentry, whose work includes these portraits that utilize old negatives, photographs and floppy disc drives.
It’s remix at its best.

Here’s to discovering a new city.
This is Calgary, Alberta, and I’ve never had an extended stay here, so the buzz and excitement of seeing a new place for the first time is alive and well.
A neat thing about living here is that since I don’t have a car, I’m limited to foot travel and discovery and it’s actually given me time and the opportunity to look at the things around me as I wait for the bus, or look out for familiar markers along a route to a new destination.
I hope this year I will use my mobile devices in a ways to capture some of this newness.
Mon mari’s closest uncle was a doctor through the 60s to the 90s. He is a storyteller, a classy humorist, a lover of opera and of art. His home is a unique condominium into which he has brought beautiful and unique objects and artwork that can be appreciated and admired and that any guest is pretty lucky to be able to experience them.
When we visited Quebec, we really got a chance to enjoy not only the lovely objects and beauty of his place, but the warmth and kindness of his hospitality and love for his nephew, and by extension, to his family, to us.
One of the pieces in the 2007 Get Lost exhibit in New York, about downtown New York. Something about the
meandering, endless combination of routes and outcomes that one can pursue in central Manhattan that is suggested in this piece captures what I imagine the essence of the City to be.
