About this event

Speakers

Craig Winslow - light artist, Portland OR

Matt Cohen - urban archeologist, Winnipeg, MB

Moderated by Elana Zysblat and John Atkin, heritage consultants and Friends of the Vancouver Archives Directors

Wednesday May 26th, 7pm Pacific Time

This talk will illustrate a new augmented restoration project and technique invented by Portland-based light artist, Craig Winslow, coined by him as ‘Light Capsules’, involving the digital revitalization of worn historical advertisements through the non-invasive technology of projection, utilizing emerging light and video mapping technology, which both highlights and preserves fading painted signs while simultaneously creating engaging public art. Hear from Craig Winslow himself about his technique, his passion and some of his favourite completed projects around North America. Additional speaker will be urban archeologist, Matt Cohen of Winnipeg, who has single-handedly researched over 100 ghost signs in Winnipeg’s Exchange District and has collaborated with Craig on a restoration event of several of these signs called Painted In Light. Guest moderators will be Friends of the Vancouver City Archives directors and heritage consultants Elana Zysblat and John Atkin who will bring forward local ghost sign examples and questions as well as an understanding of the technical conservation options regarding painted signs.
