  • Snowflakes descending on BCE place: “Drawing from the other artworks in the series, Flurry takes its inspiration from the iconic architecture of Brookfield Place and from recurring patterns in nature. In Flurry, each snowflake is shaped through a deconstruction of the Galleria’s structural columns – the familiar Y shapes are combined and reconfigured to create 6-sided snowflakes, and highlight a conceptual connection between the fractal geometry of the building to that of trees and crystals in nature.”
  • Listening to Gerald Clayton play Oscar Peterson @ Koerner Hall
