Emily Carr Grad Show

Went to the Emily Carr graduation show a couple days ago, I have to say, I was quite surprised by the grad works. A lot of pieces were extremely inspiring and mesmerizing. My absolute favorite one was the series of 12 photographs of people submerged in consumer food products such as Kraft Dinner. It was so powerful and the message was intimate and appropriate. There were a lot of pieces and installations that were very nicely executed and stylish and original. There were, however, pieces that I felt were kind of dull and unoriginal, especially the various "new forms" of facebook. We do not need any more facebook/twitter/myspace to confuse everyone, and quite frankly, I don't think the general public will get accustomed to a "new facebook," it's pretty much impossible to surpass facebook in terms of the number of users. 
After the show followed a quick stroll on the island, it is still so beautiful, even though it was pouring rain.
