His works are diverse: installations, performance art, large-scale paintings, digital media art, illustration, and short films. Each work is startling in its imagination, seductive in its beauty and powerful with its narrative authority.

The Film, Video + Integrated Media program at Emily Carr is a collaborative model of interdisciplinary learning and technical skill development, encouraging students to craft their own education by pursuing their interests in media art be it for the cinema, online or gallery installation. Courses combine collaborative and individual studio production, technical instruction, theory, critical analysis, history, storytelling, professional practices and internships in community, gallery and industry media placements.
Sans Façon and Emily Carr's Graduate Studies were in the news this week following the success of the Limelight Saturday Night project in Vancouver both in Marpole and Downtown.
Their travelling public art installation discreetly replaces two street light heads with theatrical spotlights, creating an open invitation for passersby to perform and transform the street into a stage. The artists were joined by Bryan Newson, Public Art Program Manager for the City of Vancouver and Dr. Cameron Cartiere, Dean of Graduate Studies at Emily Carr University of Art + Design.
Emily Carr's ceramic students explore a range of utilitarian, decorative and sculptural approaches to the material practice. The program actively promotes the integration of ceramics with digital media and is continually creating bridges to curriculum in other areas of the University, including Industrial Design, Illustration and Print Media.
Today, Premier Christy Clark announced the Province's investment in a new Emily Carr Great Northern Way Campus. This is a historic moment for our institution and for championing the creative sector and innovation in British Columbia.
The new campus will be purpose built and provide students, faculty, alumni, life-long learners and the community with a world class state-of-the-art facility for 21st century learning. Emily Carr will have a home to match our global reputation as a leader in art, design media and applied research.
