Art from library cards ..Wow that's creative!

Good exhibition, really liked the art from Sydney Hermant with all the cups and wires. It felt like a fun piece, and that's something i've really come to appreciate.

I enjoyed the irony of Keesic's exhibition. The portraits were striking and made me think. I loved the idea behind the see-saw. It's great to be able to actually interact with the art. I wish parts of it were more functional... but that could be dangerous in a public gallery space.

Excellent work! Very impressive! I especially enjoy the work by Fan Ling Suen--Teeter Slaughter. It combines physics and fine art and fun game. Very unique, it is not only has educational value for science of the lever principle, but also the expression of mind. I hope this piece of art will be displayed in science centers or public places to educate young people to promote the awareness of arts and science.

I was especially moved by the (red)man photo series as it has forced me to face my instant reactions to the portraits.

the see-slaughter piece is inspirational and incredibly creative. I loved how you can actually experience the work of art through physical interaction. Fantastic job!

oh steve, you wanna break up!? at 8:40 pm Thursday, September 9, 2010

oh, yes steve, we should break up!

Emily from Vancouver at 3:27 pm Wednesday, September 8, 2010

I enjoyed the see saw. I liked how, for once, you could interact with the art.

Julie and Jeannie from Vancouver at 2:17 pm Wednesday, September 8, 2010

We really liked the tents and the "see saw". Great exhibition!

caro from germany at 1:40 pm Saturday, September 4, 2010

I liked the tents especially. it's bright sunshine outside today and i like to take the question "can one live with death" with me to think about it in the beautiful surrounding of life and happyness.
