    2012 graduates, Bernie Yao and Nayeli Jimenez, collaborated with The Goodforks Inc. to create a short promotional video.

    "Naturally, when it came time to create a short video for our web launch, we strived to capture the very spirit of collaboration, momentum and enthusiasm in the final cut. While looking for people to collaborate with, recent Emily Carr University of Art + Design grads Bernie Yao and Nayeli Jimenez were an easy choice: their commitment, creative spark and sense of humour kept this project rolling—pun intended—well into the wee hours of the morning."

    Wish You Were Here! is an exhibition of miniature landscapes by Jessie McNeil ('13).

    The dioramas of Wish You Were Here! are of places found within Vancouver’s rapidly developing and re-developing landscape documented by the artist and made into miniature form. The resulting work depicts scenes that may or may not still exist, standing as a record of the continuously changing cityscape.

    As Susan Stewart claims in her book On Longing, “We find the miniature at the origin of private, individual history, but we find the gigantic at the origin of public and natural history.”
