Highlights of a four-month time-lapse taken from a cottage overlooking Lake Huron, during an absolutely epic winter. We planted a double-Raspberry Pi camera on Dcember 27th and recovered it in early May, and were somewhat surprised to find that the board hadn't frozen or been eaten by raccoons. And indeed, the more-reliable Pi had taken over 42,000 photos. Including the lake freezing and thawing, icicles forming right in front of the camera (and then miraculously breaking off just three days later, before they get boring), killer storms, and ghostly single-frame shots of deer passing by. Hope you like it!
I'm the artist-in-residence for the city of Kitchener, Ontario this year (2011). My project is to photograph 1,000 or more people within the city to create a photographic documentary of the diversity of our community. [more inside]
My grandfather, Dr John Lovett-Doust was a physiological psychiatrist in Ontario, Canada from 1952 until 1980; sadly I never met him before he died 1980. When our family was recently able to acquire a copy of a ten-part CBC radio series he created for the program University of the Air (precursor to the Ideas program) on the subject of 'contemporary psychiatry,' it was for myself and many of the other grandchildren the first time we had heard his voice. While the site is a work in progress, please enjoy sampling the recordings. [more inside]
