Defending Freedom of Expression: By early February I would learn that defending freedom of expression would become the primary focus of this art project while I focused my cameras and canvases on the wildfires and the rains that will follow this year in Alberta. For lack of funding I could not travel to any of the wildfires that burned throughout the province. Instead I relied on the inspirations provided from the news stories that covered the wildfires. I also became the news media by interviewing in Edmonton folks who survived wildfires elsewhere in the province.
