After a little break, I am back at Richmond Nature Park to sort and package all the amazing artworks created during this residency. We have around 25 packages ready to be picked up for the 90 plus participants from the various workshops. Many came as a family and some to more than one workshop, resulting in quite hefty packages. I also added some goodies from the events and a personal note in each. Others will be mailed to the greater metro-Vancouver area and one to Germany. I cannot wait for everyone to receive their packages as I always had a fondness for mail art.
This year has passed by so fast; I can still remember the conceptual transformation back in the beginning of the year. We went from a childlike approach to one of still, quiet and introspective nature. That turning point inspired all the Sensory Workshops and Story Exchanges after which lead to the installation and legacy book. It has been such a wonderful journey with the community and staff, and in return, I have been inspired to continue my exploration.
In ending, I would like to share 10 of my most memorable moments from the residency and of course, sent another big thank you to the community and the staff at Richmond Nature Park and Richmond Public Art for all your support that made this project happen.
