I Know What I Want: Open Studio

An Other Sights col­lab­o­ra­tion with The West­ern Front and 221A

Other Sights is col­lab­o­rat­ing with The West­ern Front and 221A on a publicly-sited research inten­sive about the pos­si­ble futures of the Kingsway, Broad­way and Main Street neigh­bour­hood in Van­cou­ver. In addi­tion to con­duct­ing inter­views with local inde­pen­dent busi­ness peo­ple, cul­tural lead­ers and mem­bers of the design and plan­ning com­mu­nity, we gath­ered and cir­cu­lated ideas from neigh­bours at the West­ern Front 40th Anniver­sary party.

Between July 22 and 28, mem­bers of the Other Sights col­lec­tive cre­ated an Open Stu­dio at the Kings­gate Mall. Using an aer­ial view of the inter­sec­tion, we mod­eled the desires that were offered on site and through othersights.ca. The model adapted, com­bined and recom­bined these ideas through­out the week.

Grow diy Manual

Upcom­ing Book Launch (details com­ing soon)

From May 1st to Novem­ber 30th, 2011 Other Sights for Artists’ Projects pre­sented Grow, a project by Van­cou­ver artist Holly Schmidt. The Grow DIY Man­ual draws from the writ­ing and cre­ative projects gen­er­ated dur­ing the project.

Inspired by the Farm­ers’ Almanac which is a repos­i­tory for sage advice about gar­den­ing, weather pre­dic­tions and can­ning recipes, the Grow DIY Man­ual brings together crit­i­cal writ­ing, illus­trated DIY projects, weather reports and local sea­sonal recipes. The man­ual acts as both a reflec­tion on the Grow project and a look for­ward to future possibilities.

Con­trib­u­tors include: Bar­bara Cole, Randy Lee Cut­ler, Mag­no­lia Pauker, Alexan­der McNaughton, and Holly Schmidt.
