    As part of his Low Residency MAA internship, Andres Wanner (MAA 2013) completed a residency at TRIUMF. Symmetry Magazine has published an article about his work during that period.

    Sixteen years after graduating as a nuclear physicist, following a long period of working as a digital designer and educator, Andres Wanner again immersed himself in a physics environment at TRIUMF, Canada’s national laboratory for particle and nuclear physics. Midway through a second Masters degree in Visual Arts, he was curious to revisit his scientific past from a different, artistic perspective.

    Alumnus Kevin Eastwood (’99) is an award winning filmmaker who has worked on everything from dark comedies (Fido, the 2007 movie about a boy and his pet zombie), to TV biopics (2008’s Elijah), to documentaries dealing with serious global issues (Eco-Pirate: The Story of Paul Watson in 2011, and Oil Sands Karaoke in 2013). These projects, and the many others to his credit, have found critical, commercial and financial success and made Kevin a sought-after producer and director.

    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.”
