A !Pleasant Afternoon: Public Workshops at the Esker Foundation

Story by Christina Wong. What do a park bench, a bathroom stall, and a retaining wall have in common? To most people, not too much, aside from the fact that these are common structures that allow us to go about our day to day lives. But what if these structures had an ulterior motive, one that allows us to use these objects for their intended purpose, while also restricting our ability to do anything else with them?

Amy Webber

Story and photos by Max Foley Amy Webber’s relationship to art is fairly archetypal. Her natural talent – discovered at a young age – combined with conflicting aspirations, experimenting with mediums, and a healthy amount of serendipity, has resulted in an aesthetic that is equal parts unique and approachable. What sets her apart, then, is her love of physical media and her gravitation towards subtlety in a world obsessed with the bright impermanence of digital.
