Kathy Toth is an art photographer, and in this presentation she shares a recent photography project about hidden spaces in the city where bridges, drains, and drainage channels become art galleries for graffiti, skate parks for teens.

Vancouver based photographer Jason Neve gives some insight into his project, "Disposable Landscapes," which he uses to document the broken down urban scenes of Vancouver's downtown east side, a den of drugs, prostitutes, and poverty. He looks at the notes left in graffiti and the occasional revelations they can bring, and asks what the ongoing gentrification of the downtown east side will mean in ten years.

@ VOL 4
ON SEP 20, 2013
Freedom is man's capacity to choose, with dignity, commitments to himself. Really free is the man who can set the limits of self - awareness that creates the outline of his existence.
"Freedom" is to act in accordance with what creates love in your soul.
Therefore it is not enough to not be enslaved to be free. We need to walk in accordance with what causes love. For example what excites or stirs your soul. Living a life of routine and mediocracy, you are not free.

They are certainly making everyone's head turn and brighten their days.
As we promised, here's the first of our series of presentations from last night's pre-TDW edition of PechaKucha Night (Vol. 77), as artist and researcher Zachary Lieberman walks us through an amazing project that has brought creative life again to an artist -- graffiti artist TEMPT -- who has lost the ability to move.
