This Week at EPFC North: Be-Leafing

EPFC | May 19th, 2020

This week, inspired by the wonderful VANCOUVER TREE BOOK by David Tracey, we’re thinking about LEAVES. It’s May, everything is green, and have you ever stopped to look at all the different leaf shapes, textures and shades the trees of our city are showing off right now? On our walks around Moberly Fieldhouse this week, we’ll be keeping an eye out for fallen leaves and collecting some for close up observation and future art projects like printmaking, cyanotypes, eco-processing, phytograms, animations and projections. What are some things you’re noticing about the leaves in your neighbourhood right now?

It’s May and everything is in bloom so this week we’re celebrating Cinema Organica, EPFC’s Super 8 workshop series that invites participants of all-ages to make films in/about community gardens and process the film using fruit, leaves and flowers from the garden itself! This image is from a session with the amazing Global Girls GLOW back in 2017 at La Tierra de la Culebra in Highland Park, CA.
