Our natural world is a fraction of what it was before the mass migrations and oil spills of the human era. To imagine how it once was is not to lament, but to picture what it can be again.

Catherine Bodmer – DUO
From September 2 to October 9, 2010
Opening reception : Thursday September 2 at 8pm
At Clark Centre, Montreal
The subjects of Catherine Bodmer’s photographs are spaces with uncertain or precarious functions. The ambivalent nature of these bare places, from frozen lakes to roadways and vacant lots, derives from their potential to change over time and according to the various ways they can be occupied. This idea of transformation, which is central to Bodmer’s work, is developed in the splitting and alteration of her photographs which, in both their structure and their tiniest details, call for active observation.
Join us in taking peaceful action against Arctic oil drilling!
A few moments ago, our activists scaled Cairn Energy’s controversial oil rig off Greenland.
Activists approached the rig in inflatable speedboats, climbed up the inside of the rig and are now hanging from tents suspended from ropes.
Companies like Cairn are desperate to pursue the last drops of oil even if that means risking our environment and climate in the process – that’s why we’re taking peaceful action at Cairn’s drilling platform today.

Even if parents go out of their way to ensure that all their kids get equal attention, middle children still lose. “They receive less cumulative investment than do eldest and lastborn offspring,” Sulloway says. And that explains why they go through life with lower self-esteem, feel more self-conscious, and often feel closer to friends than to parents.
