Film KONELINE: our land beautiful 2016-12-02 15:00:00
Description

KONELĪNE: our land beautiful

Director: Nettie Wild, Canada, 2016, 96 minutes; PG

WINNER! BEST CANADIAN DOCUMENTARY! –Hot Docs 2016

Like last year’s doc ‘Haida Gwaii,’ Nettie Wild’s extraordinary documentary reveals the stunning landscape to the north, and charts the tension between a still relatively pristine beauty and the scars of economic development. First and foremost a rhapsodic visual response to a place and the people in it, KONELĪNE engages the senses with its ravishing aerial views and staggering vistas (as well as its superb sound design).… The film is a meditation on different cultures, different conceptions of time and value, and a glimpse of the something that will surely outlast us all. –Vancouver International Film Festival

”TRANSCENDENT, BREATHTAKING SPECTACLE!” --Maclean’s

“A FEAST FOR THE EYES….A tone poem to a beautiful land and the amazing characters who live in it. I urge you to see it.” - POV

“Award-winning director Nettie Wild crafts a breathtaking love letter—in stunning CinemaScope and surround sound—that captures the majestic beauty of the land and the unique people who live on it." --Hot Docs 2016

Lecture/Seminar Tracing eutrophication in coastal waters of North America: Sedimentary records of phytoplankton 2016-12-02 14:45:00
Description

Vera Pospelova
Associate Professor, School of Earth and Ocean Sciences, UVic

A rapid expansion of human economic activity and population growth over the last decades is having a profound impact on coastal ecosystems.  Human-induced coastal nutrient enrichment, or eutrophication, has prompted a search for biological and geochemical “proxies” of an estuarine health.  Such proxies have to be developed and subsequently applied in regions where monitoring of water quality conditions is rather limited or absent.  In addition, there is a concern about eutrophication-caused blooms of toxic phytoplankton species near sewage discharge locations.

In order to understand impacts of sewage and storm water effluents on phytoplankton in estuaries, a number of studies were performed along the urbanized coasts of the USA and Canada, including the Capital Regional District (CRD), Southern Vancouver Island. We use sedimentary records of two major groups of phytoplankton (dinoflagellates and diatoms) at a very high spatial scale to detect a response of local phytoplankton to current wastewater management practices in the region.

Exhibit the absence of the origin of its likeness 2016-12-02 All Day
Description

Has this photograph been digitally altered? Did the scene it show actually occur? Since the photograph’s invention, people have been enamored by the image’s resemblance to its subject. But changes in the field of photography like digital imaging and editing have brought this into question. In the absence of the origin of its likeness, artists Laura Dutton and Arnold Koroshegyi examine these issues, using both analogue and digital technologies, to destabilize traditional readings and open up new avenues for making and looking at photographs. 
 
the absence of the origin of its likeness opens Friday, November 4 at 7:30 p.m. at Open Space. The exhibition runs until Saturday, December 10. A panel discussion will be held on Saturday, November 5 from 1:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. The speakers include Trudi Lynn Smith, Cedric Bomford, Brandon Poole, Arnold Koroshegyi, and Laura Dutton, with Lynda Gammon as the moderator. 
 
Deliberately drawing attention to the condition of the photograph’s making, Dutton and Koroshegyi’s works both speak to our denaturalized world and the artists’ urge to represent the unrepresentable. Dutton’s work starts with photographs of urbanscapes and Koroshegyi’s work begins with artificial flowers; however, through the formal, conceptual, and material possibilities of photography the end result is a form of abstraction that opens up multiple meanings.
