    The City of Vancouver Public Art Program announced a new video animation by Associate Professor Diyan Achjadi, currently screening
    on the double outdoor screens, operated by CoreVision, at the north-east corner of Robson and Granville Streets. The four segments of the video
    narrative are interspersed with advertising content on the screens.

    In these animations, Diyan's avatar "Girl" encounters the landmarks of
    Vancouver and interacts with them. As she picks them up, they become a
    miniature collection of objects. After landing in Vancouver, Girl visits
    the Harbour Centre Tower, the Gastown Steam Clock, Gassy Jack's statue
    and Science World.

    Geoffrey Farmer (92) has transformed the gallery at REDCAT (Los Angeles) into both a studio workshop as well as a theatrical space where an assembly of performers and mechanized objects act out a scripted narrative in the form of a sculptural tableau.

    Having started mid-February, Geoffrey is in residence to work on-site and create a new site-specific "sculpture play" titled Let's Make the Water Turn Black in response to the region's social history and Los Angeles' influence on the counter-cultureal movement.

    Geoffrey Farmer | Let's Make the Water Turn Black
    Ongoing to April 10, 2011
