    The Eat St. iPhone app debuts today, April 4, in conjunction with the Food Network's launch of the television series, Eat St. later this week.

    The idea for the mobile app emerged from a brainstorming session between Emily Carr's SIM Centre and Paperny Films on how social media could be used to enhance viewer experience. The app was then developed by Invoke Media.

    Users will be able to access information on vendor locations, menu, hours of operation, photo's, reviews and a Twitter feed (@EatStTweet) in Vancouver, and major cities throughout North America  – from your TV to your phone and into your belly. Get it while it’s hot!

    The social model of disability challenges the idea that it is a medical problem requiring “treatment”, and asserts that it is a problem of overcoming barriers to ordinary life. Design seeks to serve this by providing solutions that are rooted in deep contextual understanding and integrate multiple criteria.

    A Furtive Conundrum: Practicing the Furtive is a group exhibition that concerns itself with the reifications and translations of stealth and visibility in creative practices. This exhibit showcases works that investigate a change in social structures of space through barely perceptible actions. These pieces might be considered furtive, that is, they operate on the level of camouflage and demonstrate the potential to seep into an environment. Exhibiting these works potentially counteracts their ‘unframed’ nature. This exhibition seeks speculative ways of negotiating this conundrum while paradoxically drawing attention to the very qualities that are required for a work to be qualified as ‘furtive’.

    Curated by Mariane Bourcheix-Laporte and Ryan Mathieson.

    Collaborative art hits the Portland Hotel Society’s Interurban Gallery
    http://www.straight.com/article-382873/vancouver/art-heart

    "For proof that art really can change lives, a visit to the Portland Hotel Society’s Interurban Gallery is in order. Until next Thursday (March 31), the gallery is exhibiting the results of a collaborative art project between the Dr. Peter Centre and students from Emily Carr University of Art and Design. Students and clients worked together on a creative journey in the project, which was run as part of a new Emily Carr course. One client, Murray White, was brought to tears by the new logo he and student Jacklyn Harris created for his recycling business (pictured above)." March 24, 2011
