A scientific and spiritual walk amongst the trees- it’s OK to hug a tree!

Come join us for a walk in the forest you will never forget, amongst giants of another time. Learn a tree’s story, up close and personal. Combining elements of therapeutic “Forest bathing” with modern science, you will experience firsthand why these giants live successfully on our earth, and why we feel so good when we are amongst them.   Philosopher and mountaineer John Muir wrote, “Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” Now more than ever, modern science is telling us this is actually true…

Book Now

Experience a forest with all your senses in a slow and deliberate manner, letting the forest wash over you as the Japanese have practiced for millennia through elements of Shinrin-yoku, or “Forest Bathing”.   We pair this therapeutic experience with ground-breaking scientific knowledge that trees communicate, share resources, experience pain, and have memories. As highlighted in the book, The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben, 30 years of research by Dr. Suzanne Simard of the University of British Columbia provides evidence that trees communicate and share resources, cooperating in ways never thought possible. Reconnect with the Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir gentle giants who were just seedlings in this vast Canadian wilderness in the 1,300’s at the end of the medieval time period while the bubonic plague raged in Europe and the Aztecs first arrived in Tenochtitlan (Mexico City). Makes you feel a little insignificant, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ll realize that you subconsciously rely on them even more than you know, and there’s much more going on than meets the eye. The trees have secrets to tell…. If you listen.

Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to host resident artists prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet for the creation of Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard, a multi-channel AV installation exploring the history and geography of Harrop-Procter. prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet have been working collaboratively since 2009 and currently live in Nelson BC with their two children. Their shared work includes writing, curation, visual art, music and sound compositions. In their latest project to be presented at Oxygen Art Centre, they will focus on a series of fictional aerial vignettes and sound environments created with drone and smartphone technologies. This exhibition is a meditation on the relational networks of technology, economy, landscape and memory that have shifted the geography of Harrop-Procter, prOphecy sun’s parental residence.

sun and Fleet will be in residence at Oxygen from August 19th through September 5th 2019. There will be a reception for the artists on Friday September 6 at 6:00pm, before the Nelson Art Walk Gala at Hall Street Plaza. An artist talk with both artists present will take place on Saturday September 7th at 4pm. The exhibition will run from September 6 through 28th, with a closing dinner open to the public on September 27th at 5:30pm at Oxygen Art Centre, where they will prepare a meal using food harvested from their family’s farm in Harrop-Procter. During the exhibition, Oxygen Art Centre will be open to the public Wednesday – Saturday 1pm-5pm. Admission is free or by donation, and Oxygen is located at 320 Vernon street (alley entrance behind Hipperson’s Hardware).

Harrop-Procter is a rural community surrounded by historical fruit orchards, mountainous meadows and a train rail line that hugs the lakeside and rides from west to east daily. Where once paddleboats used to navigate the lake, now cars, trucks and fibre optic cables connect us together. “Yet, these historical relations remain, shaping our imaginaries with deep grooves in the senses of the land,” says sun. On the hillsides in and around Sunshine Bay, neatly parceled residential lots now cut through what was once a thriving fruit producing region. The aged trees, many of them grey, gnarled, and half broken, are buried up to their branches in tall grass, yet continue to produce apples. In Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard artists prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet use AV technology to reveal the complex social and economic relations that have shaped the historical orchards and surrounding landscape. An ambient soundscore composed of field recordings taken in-situ will accompany the moving imagery, amplified throughout the gallery.

Life of a Tree
Aug 19 all-day

A scientific and spiritual walk amongst the trees- it’s OK to hug a tree!

Come join us for a walk in the forest you will never forget, amongst giants of another time. Learn a tree’s story, up close and personal. Combining elements of therapeutic “Forest bathing” with modern science, you will experience firsthand why these giants live successfully on our earth, and why we feel so good when we are amongst them.   Philosopher and mountaineer John Muir wrote, “Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” Now more than ever, modern science is telling us this is actually true…

Book Now

Experience a forest with all your senses in a slow and deliberate manner, letting the forest wash over you as the Japanese have practiced for millennia through elements of Shinrin-yoku, or “Forest Bathing”.   We pair this therapeutic experience with ground-breaking scientific knowledge that trees communicate, share resources, experience pain, and have memories. As highlighted in the book, The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben, 30 years of research by Dr. Suzanne Simard of the University of British Columbia provides evidence that trees communicate and share resources, cooperating in ways never thought possible. Reconnect with the Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir gentle giants who were just seedlings in this vast Canadian wilderness in the 1,300’s at the end of the medieval time period while the bubonic plague raged in Europe and the Aztecs first arrived in Tenochtitlan (Mexico City). Makes you feel a little insignificant, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ll realize that you subconsciously rely on them even more than you know, and there’s much more going on than meets the eye. The trees have secrets to tell…. If you listen.

Details/Good to Know:

  • Length of time: 3.5 hours
  • Either morning or afternoon sessions offered
  • Guests must provide own transport- a portion of the Experience takes place a 25 minute drive from Kaslo (let us know if this is a problem and we will see what we can do!)
  • Physical Challenge Rating: medium

  • Good footwear suggested
  • Come prepared for heat, bugs, sun, and rain

Closing Dinner: Friday September 27th | 5:30pm (Blue Night)
Exhibition Dates: September 6 – 28, Wednesday-Saturday 1-5pm

Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to host resident artists prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet for the creation of Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard, a multi-channel AV installation exploring the history and geography of Harrop-Procter. prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet have been working collaboratively since 2009 and currently live in Nelson BC with their two children. Their shared work includes writing, curation, visual art, music and sound compositions. In their latest project to be presented at Oxygen Art Centre, they will focus on a series of fictional aerial vignettes and sound environments created with drone and smartphone technologies. This exhibition is a meditation on the relational networks of technology, economy, landscape and memory that have shifted the geography of Harrop-Procter, prOphecy sun’s parental residence.

sun and Fleet will be in residence at Oxygen from August 19th through September 5th 2019. There will be a reception for the artists on Friday September 6 at 6:00pm, before the Nelson Art Walk Gala at Hall Street Plaza. An artist talk with both artists present will take place on Saturday September 7th at 4pm. The exhibition will run from September 6 through 28th, with a closing dinner open to the public on September 27th at 5:30pm at Oxygen Art Centre, where they will prepare a meal using food harvested from their family’s farm in Harrop-Procter. During the exhibition, Oxygen Art Centre will be open to the public Wednesday – Saturday 1pm-5pm. Admission is free or by donation, and Oxygen is located at 320 Vernon street (alley entrance behind Hipperson’s Hardware).

Harrop-Procter is a rural community surrounded by historical fruit orchards, mountainous meadows and a train rail line that hugs the lakeside and rides from west to east daily. Where once paddleboats used to navigate the lake, now cars, trucks and fibre optic cables connect us together. “Yet, these historical relations remain, shaping our imaginaries with deep grooves in the senses of the land,” says sun. On the hillsides in and around Sunshine Bay, neatly parceled residential lots now cut through what was once a thriving fruit producing region. The aged trees, many of them grey, gnarled, and half broken, are buried up to their branches in tall grass, yet continue to produce apples. In Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard artists prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet use AV technology to reveal the complex social and economic relations that have shaped the historical orchards and surrounding landscape. An ambient soundscore composed of field recordings taken in-situ will accompany the moving imagery, amplified throughout the gallery.

Life of a Tree
Aug 21 all-day

A scientific and spiritual walk amongst the trees- it’s OK to hug a tree!

Come join us for a walk in the forest you will never forget, amongst giants of another time. Learn a tree’s story, up close and personal. Combining elements of therapeutic “Forest bathing” with modern science, you will experience firsthand why these giants live successfully on our earth, and why we feel so good when we are amongst them.   Philosopher and mountaineer John Muir wrote, “Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” Now more than ever, modern science is telling us this is actually true…

Book Now

Experience a forest with all your senses in a slow and deliberate manner, letting the forest wash over you as the Japanese have practiced for millennia through elements of Shinrin-yoku, or “Forest Bathing”.   We pair this therapeutic experience with ground-breaking scientific knowledge that trees communicate, share resources, experience pain, and have memories. As highlighted in the book, The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben, 30 years of research by Dr. Suzanne Simard of the University of British Columbia provides evidence that trees communicate and share resources, cooperating in ways never thought possible. Reconnect with the Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir gentle giants who were just seedlings in this vast Canadian wilderness in the 1,300’s at the end of the medieval time period while the bubonic plague raged in Europe and the Aztecs first arrived in Tenochtitlan (Mexico City). Makes you feel a little insignificant, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ll realize that you subconsciously rely on them even more than you know, and there’s much more going on than meets the eye. The trees have secrets to tell…. If you listen.

Details/Good to Know:

  • Length of time: 3.5 hours
  • Either morning or afternoon sessions offered
  • Guests must provide own transport- a portion of the Experience takes place a 25 minute drive from Kaslo (let us know if this is a problem and we will see what we can do!)
  • Physical Challenge Rating: medium
  • Held outdoors
  • Good footwear suggested
  • Come prepared for heat, bugs, sun, and rain 

 What’s Included:

  • Snacks and drinks (locally prepared)
  • Full experience led by experience leaders

  • 12 persons max (from one or multiple groups)*

Jude Griebel and Tammy Salzl: Unfamiliar Selves @ Touchstones Nelson Museum of Art and History
May 4 – May 29 all-day

 

Curator: Rod Taylor

Who are we? In very different ways, the work of Jude Griebel and Tammy Salzl explores this question. Griebel’s fantastic sculptural beings contrast with the quieter, more introspective qualities of Salzl’s small scale watercolour paintings. Together, they offer a diverse and engaging perspective on the uncertain notion of identity.

At 31 years old, Simardy grew up in Castlegar which is where he is currently based. He’s been playing music for six years now, picking up the craft from various Kootenay DJs. He dabbles in every genre of music, but particularly likes to play Ghetto Funk, Breaks, and multiple House variations. He’s played multiple gigs throughout the Kooteneys as well as in Vancouver and rarely turns a gig down as he’s always looking for new opportunities to share his enthuasiastic sets!

DJ Mister Leon has been deep into the underground dance scene since the late 90s, moving to Nelson from Vancouver at the ripe age of 15. Now 37 and well seasoned, his recent entry into the Kootenay scene is definitely better late than never. His selection of deep, melodic, and funky house, sometimes diving into the bumpy, tech side of grooves will always keep your feet moving and mouth grinning!

Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard @ Oxygen Art Centre @ #3A
Aug 19 @ 8:00 pm – Sep 10 @ 7:00 pm

Residency Dates: August 19 – September 5
Opening Reception: Friday September 6 | 6:00pm (before Art Walk Gala)
Artist Talk: Saturday September 7 | 4:00pm
Closing Dinner: Friday September 27th | 5:30pm (Blue Night)
Exhibition Dates: September 6 – 28, Wednesday-Saturday 1-5pm

Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to host resident artists prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet for the creation of Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard, a multi-channel AV installation exploring the history and geography of Harrop-Procter. prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet have been working collaboratively since 2009 and currently live in Nelson BC with their two children. Their shared work includes writing, curation, visual art, music and sound compositions. In their latest project to be presented at Oxygen Art Centre, they will focus on a series of fictional aerial vignettes and sound environments created with drone and smartphone technologies. This exhibition is a meditation on the relational networks of technology, economy, landscape and memory that have shifted the geography of Harrop-Procter, prOphecy sun’s parental residence.

sun and Fleet will be in residence at Oxygen from August 19th through September 5th 2019. There will be a reception for the artists on Friday September 6 at 6:00pm, before the Nelson Art Walk Gala at Hall Street Plaza. An artist talk with both artists present will take place on Saturday September 7th at 4pm. The exhibition will run from September 6 through 28th, with a closing dinner open to the public on September 27th at 5:30pm at Oxygen Art Centre, where they will prepare a meal using food harvested from their family’s farm in Harrop-Procter. During the exhibition, Oxygen Art Centre will be open to the public Wednesday – Saturday 1pm-5pm. Admission is free or by donation, and Oxygen is located at 320 Vernon street (alley entrance behind Hipperson’s Hardware).

Harrop-Procter is a rural community surrounded by historical fruit orchards, mountainous meadows and a train rail line that hugs the lakeside and rides from west to east daily. Where once paddleboats used to navigate the lake, now cars, trucks and fibre optic cables connect us together. “Yet, these historical relations remain, shaping our imaginaries with deep grooves in the senses of the land,” says sun. On the hillsides in and around Sunshine Bay, neatly parceled residential lots now cut through what was once a thriving fruit producing region. The aged trees, many of them grey, gnarled, and half broken, are buried up to their branches in tall grass, yet continue to produce apples. In Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard artists prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet use AV technology to reveal the complex social and economic relations that have shaped the historical orchards and surrounding landscape. An ambient soundscore composed of field recordings taken in-situ will accompany the moving imagery, amplified throughout the gallery.

Life of a Tree
Aug 21 all-day

A scientific and spiritual walk amongst the trees- it’s OK to hug a tree!

Come join us for a walk in the forest you will never forget, amongst giants of another time. Learn a tree’s story, up close and personal. Combining elements of therapeutic “Forest bathing” with modern science, you will experience firsthand why these giants live successfully on our earth, and why we feel so good when we are amongst them.   Philosopher and mountaineer John Muir wrote, “Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” Now more than ever, modern science is telling us this is actually true…

Book Now

Experience a forest with all your senses in a slow and deliberate manner, letting the forest wash over you as the Japanese have practiced for millennia through elements of Shinrin-yoku, or “Forest Bathing”.   We pair this therapeutic experience with ground-breaking scientific knowledge that trees communicate, share resources, experience pain, and have memories. As highlighted in the book, The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben, 30 years of research by Dr. Suzanne Simard of the University of British Columbia provides evidence that trees communicate and share resources, cooperating in ways never thought possible. Reconnect with the Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir gentle giants who were just seedlings in this vast Canadian wilderness in the 1,300’s at the end of the medieval time period while the bubonic plague raged in Europe and the Aztecs first arrived in Tenochtitlan (Mexico City). Makes you feel a little insignificant, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ll realize that you subconsciously rely on them even more than you know, and there’s much more going on than meets the eye. The trees have secrets to tell…. If you listen.

Details/Good to Know:

  • Length of time: 3.5 hours
  • Either morning or afternoon sessions offered
  • Guests must provide own transport- a portion of the Experience takes place a 25 minute drive from Kaslo (let us know if this is a problem and we will see what we can do!)
  • Physical Challenge Rating: medium
  • Held outdoors
  • Good footwear suggested
  • Come prepared for heat, bugs, sun, and rain

Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard @ Oxygen Art Centre @ #3A
Aug 19 @ 8:00 pm – Sep 10 @ 7:00 pm

Residency Dates: August 19 – September 5
Opening Reception: Friday September 6 | 6:00pm (before Art Walk Gala)
Artist Talk: Saturday September 7 | 4:00pm
Closing Dinner: Friday September 27th | 5:30pm (Blue Night)
Exhibition Dates: September 6 – 28, Wednesday-Saturday 1-5pm

Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to host resident artists prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet for the creation of Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard, a multi-channel AV installation exploring the history and geography of Harrop-Procter. prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet have been working collaboratively since 2009 and currently live in Nelson BC with their two children. Their shared work includes writing, curation, visual art, music and sound compositions. In their latest project to be presented at Oxygen Art Centre, they will focus on a series of fictional aerial vignettes and sound environments created with drone and smartphone technologies. This exhibition is a meditation on the relational networks of technology, economy, landscape and memory that have shifted the geography of Harrop-Procter, prOphecy sun’s parental residence.

sun and Fleet will be in residence at Oxygen from August 19th through September 5th 2019. There will be a reception for the artists on Friday September 6 at 6:00pm, before the Nelson Art Walk Gala at Hall Street Plaza. An artist talk with both artists present will take place on Saturday September 7th at 4pm. The exhibition will run from September 6 through 28th, with a closing dinner open to the public on September 27th at 5:30pm at Oxygen Art Centre, where they will prepare a meal using food harvested from their family’s farm in Harrop-Procter. During the exhibition, Oxygen Art Centre will be open to the public Wednesday – Saturday 1pm-5pm. Admission is free or by donation, and Oxygen is located at 320 Vernon street (alley entrance behind Hipperson’s Hardware).

Harrop-Procter is a rural community surrounded by historical fruit orchards, mountainous meadows and a train rail line that hugs the lakeside and rides from west to east daily. Where once paddleboats used to navigate the lake, now cars, trucks and fibre optic cables connect us together. “Yet, these historical relations remain, shaping our imaginaries with deep grooves in the senses of the land,” says sun. On the hillsides in and around Sunshine Bay, neatly parceled residential lots now cut through what was once a thriving fruit producing region. The aged trees, many of them grey, gnarled, and half broken, are buried up to their branches in tall grass, yet continue to produce apples. In Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard artists prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet use AV technology to reveal the complex social and economic relations that have shaped the historical orchards and surrounding landscape. An ambient soundscore composed of field recordings taken in-situ will accompany the moving imagery, amplified throughout the gallery.

ABOUT prOphecy sun & Darren Fleet
prOphecy sun is an interdisciplinary performance artist, feminist, movement, video and sound maker, mother and PhD Candidate at the School of Interactive Arts + Technology at Simon Fraser University. She holds a BFA and MFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. Her practice celebrates both conscious and unconscious moments, and the vulnerable spaces of the in-between in which art and life overlap. She performs and exhibits regularly in local, national and international settings, festivals, conferences and galleries. She is also the recipient of the Governor Generals Award and the Lakehead Jurors Prize and has authored several peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and journal publications.

Darren Fleet is an ex-poet from Aldergrove, schooled in the Fukovian theory of aesthetics. He is also a writer, journalist, photographer and PhD candidate and instructor at the SFU School of Communication. His interests include consumer culture, environmental discourse and the cultural politics of fossil fuels. He holds an MA in Journalism from UBC and was part of the editorial team at Adbusters magazine that launched the #occupywallstreet meme into the world. His work has been featured in numerous publications and forums including: Vice, Public, Journalists for Human Rights, UTNE Reader, Al-Jazeera, The National Observer, The Tyee, The Globe & Mail, and at the Istanbul Biennial of Art.

Life of a Tree
Aug 21 all-day

A scientific and spiritual walk amongst the trees- it’s OK to hug a tree!

Come join us for a walk in the forest you will never forget, amongst giants of another time. Learn a tree’s story, up close and personal. Combining elements of therapeutic “Forest bathing” with modern science, you will experience firsthand why these giants live successfully on our earth, and why we feel so good when we are amongst them.   Philosopher and mountaineer John Muir wrote, “Between every two pines is a doorway to a new world.” Now more than ever, modern science is telling us this is actually true…

Book Now

Experience a forest with all your senses in a slow and deliberate manner, letting the forest wash over you as the Japanese have practiced for millennia through elements of Shinrin-yoku, or “Forest Bathing”.   We pair this therapeutic experience with ground-breaking scientific knowledge that trees communicate, share resources, experience pain, and have memories. As highlighted in the book, The Hidden Life of Trees by Peter Wohlleben, 30 years of research by Dr. Suzanne Simard of the University of British Columbia provides evidence that trees communicate and share resources, cooperating in ways never thought possible. Reconnect with the Western Red Cedar and Douglas Fir gentle giants who were just seedlings in this vast Canadian wilderness in the 1,300’s at the end of the medieval time period while the bubonic plague raged in Europe and the Aztecs first arrived in Tenochtitlan (Mexico City). Makes you feel a little insignificant, doesn’t it? Maybe you’ll realize that you subconsciously rely on them even more than you know, and there’s much more going on than meets the eye. The trees have secrets to tell…. If you listen.

  • Length of time: 3.5 hours
  • Either morning or afternoon sessions offered

Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard @ Oxygen Art Centre @ #3A
Aug 19 @ 8:00 pm – Sep 10 @ 7:00 pm

Residency Dates: August 19 – September 5
Opening Reception: Friday September 6 | 6:00pm (before Art Walk Gala)
Artist Talk: Saturday September 7 | 4:00pm
Closing Dinner: Friday September 27th | 5:30pm (Blue Night)
Exhibition Dates: September 6 – 28, Wednesday-Saturday 1-5pm

Oxygen Art Centre is pleased to host resident artists prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet for the creation of Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard, a multi-channel AV installation exploring the history and geography of Harrop-Procter. prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet have been working collaboratively since 2009 and currently live in Nelson BC with their two children. Their shared work includes writing, curation, visual art, music and sound compositions. In their latest project to be presented at Oxygen Art Centre, they will focus on a series of fictional aerial vignettes and sound environments created with drone and smartphone technologies. This exhibition is a meditation on the relational networks of technology, economy, landscape and memory that have shifted the geography of Harrop-Procter, prOphecy sun’s parental residence.

sun and Fleet will be in residence at Oxygen from August 19th through September 5th 2019. There will be a reception for the artists on Friday September 6 at 6:00pm, before the Nelson Art Walk Gala at Hall Street Plaza. An artist talk with both artists present will take place on Saturday September 7th at 4pm. The exhibition will run from September 6 through 28th, with a closing dinner open to the public on September 27th at 5:30pm at Oxygen Art Centre, where they will prepare a meal using food harvested from their family’s farm in Harrop-Procter. During the exhibition, Oxygen Art Centre will be open to the public Wednesday – Saturday 1pm-5pm. Admission is free or by donation, and Oxygen is located at 320 Vernon street (alley entrance behind Hipperson’s Hardware).

Harrop-Procter is a rural community surrounded by historical fruit orchards, mountainous meadows and a train rail line that hugs the lakeside and rides from west to east daily. Where once paddleboats used to navigate the lake, now cars, trucks and fibre optic cables connect us together. “Yet, these historical relations remain, shaping our imaginaries with deep grooves in the senses of the land,” says sun. On the hillsides in and around Sunshine Bay, neatly parceled residential lots now cut through what was once a thriving fruit producing region. The aged trees, many of them grey, gnarled, and half broken, are buried up to their branches in tall grass, yet continue to produce apples. In Nostalgic Geography: Mama and Papa have Trains, Orchards and Mountains in their Backyard artists prOphecy sun and Darren Fleet use AV technology to reveal the complex social and economic relations that have shaped the historical orchards and surrounding landscape. An ambient soundscore composed of field recordings taken in-situ will accompany the moving imagery, amplified throughout the gallery.

ABOUT prOphecy sun & Darren Fleet
prOphecy sun is an interdisciplinary performance artist, feminist, movement, video and sound maker, mother and PhD Candidate at the School of Interactive Arts + Technology at Simon Fraser University. She holds a BFA and MFA from Emily Carr University of Art + Design. Her practice celebrates both conscious and unconscious moments, and the vulnerable spaces of the in-between in which art and life overlap. She performs and exhibits regularly in local, national and international settings, festivals, conferences and galleries. She is also the recipient of the Governor Generals Award and the Lakehead Jurors Prize and has authored several peer-reviewed articles, book chapters, and journal publications.

Darren Fleet is an ex-poet from Aldergrove, schooled in the Fukovian theory of aesthetics. He is also a writer, journalist, photographer and PhD candidate and instructor at the SFU School of Communication. His interests include consumer culture, environmental discourse and the cultural politics of fossil fuels. He holds an MA in Journalism from UBC and was part of the editorial team at Adbusters magazine that launched the #occupywallstreet meme into the world. His work has been featured in numerous publications and forums including: Vice, Public, Journalists for Human Rights, UTNE Reader, Al-Jazeera, The National Observer, The Tyee, The Globe & Mail, and at the Istanbul Biennial of Art.
