|You are invited to a 20-minute talk I’m giving on my piece “Looking Up and In” Thursday, May 23 at 8:30pm out in front of Kitchener City Hall in the Civic Square. Please RSVP to either the facebook event or to firstname.lastname@example.org. Just need to know rough numbers for snacks!
Really hope you can make it. -DW
I just delivered my latest piece in the Looking Up and In series to the City of Kitchener for projection atop City Hall on The Cube. I believe this show runs nightly from mid-May to mid-June, 8:30pm to 10:00pm. Brohemus and I checked out the final deliverable last night (photo above) and at current sunset times, the piece looks really good by 9:15pm.
Next week, I’m going to give a talk on the project at City Hall, all are invited.
Just confirming a date for that. [Update: talk is Thursday, May 23 at 8:30pm. Here’s the invite.] Deets will be here, and fb, and tw. I’m going to speed-talk through the concept, the technical and creative photography challenges, and the design/construction of the rig I used to illuminate and shoot the photos. All that in only 20 minutes, because honestly, who can pay attention for longer than that? And, in true maker spirit, I’ll bring all the gear with me so you can check it out and ask questions.
What’s this all about? I put together a statement back in September 2012 when I started this series. And since every photographer needs money to buy more gear, I’ll mention that I have prints available of these photos and others.
You are the rock under all of us, Mom.
You hoe a tough row with grace, and compassion, and courage.
Thank you for your love.

Project Loud Monkey is making a comeback this spring: Son of a Monkey!
We’re hoping to rock out the first-ever Waterloo Mini Maker Faire at Kitchener City Hall on Saturday, June 15 (provided our entry is approved). Remember how we killed it in Toronto back in 2011? This time, we’re going MORE and LOUDER! Please ping me (email@example.com) if you have stuff to contribute.

Next week is go-time for my Looking Up and In series to be projected atop Kitchener City Hall on The Cube. I think there will be an opportunity for me to say something in person about the piece and the series, so stay tuned. Also excited to show the rig I built to get these photos and share some of the things I’ve learned.
