I made a new digital projection piece for The Tangle, an art event organized by a few friends in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. For Three Times Round, I revisited a series of panoramic photos I made in 2003 of an abandoned barn in the town I grew up in. The field where the barn stood is now a new subdivision. The text is about departing and returning; I have moved away from Newfoundland and back again three times.

Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, everything is the same.
Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, you wonder if you ever left.
Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, the place feels different.
Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, you see things differently.
Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, you are not the same.
Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, you can’t find it.

Got an iPad recently and I’ve been making a few drawings on it, mostly with the Paper app. I’ve never really liked drawing on the computer with a stylus or mouse, but the iPad feels much more natural. Being able to turn the tablet around in your hand like a sketchbook makes a huge difference.
