Community Outreach and Engagement:
A performance sculpture project starts with an interactive sculpture, but requires a substantial amount of community outreach and engagement in order to achieve its goals. Multimodal in nature, a performance sculpture project embraces elements of socially engaged, dialogical, and interactive strategies that combined, work to activate and intervene within a community utilizing various forms and actions.

I want to thank everyone involved in the Machine of Awesome Bright Liquid Blueness project on Granville Island. It was a fantastic event thanks to everyone's involvement.

The Beginning, Again
Much like the Aqua Lauta project, I have begun by putting down chalk drawings. This, after building a scale wood and foam maquette of what was the first version. Now, drawing on home made chalk boards, (yellow chalk paint on board) I have been drawing, to scale, more refined concepts. Once drawn to scale I am able to spend some time with the layout, walking through the experience.

Jan 6th 2016:
I made phone contact with Miriam at the CMHC in regards to adding the locations of the drinking water fountains to the hand held Granville Island tourist map. She responded by stating the map was already kind of full, and that they are very busy getting ready for a festival in February. I responded by stating that there was room for some small water drops on the map with the additional information added to the directory. I also let her know I would submit my request in writing and asked her when was a good time to follow up.
I will be following up Feb. 10th to the email below. The email was copied to Sebastian Lippa, MCIP, RPP Project Manager, Planning & Development.
