Following a summer of epic travels, including trips to the Yukon Territory & Alaska, New Brunswick & Maine, Newfoundland, and driving across the prairies to Waterton Lakes National Park and back, I was about due for a New Hampshire vacation! So when Labour Day weekend came around, I drove down to North Conway for two […]Read more "Mount Jefferson"
We spent a week in a chalet in the White Mountains of New Hampshire between Christmas and New Years. The weather (freezing rain, and eventually just rain) discouraged hiking on the bigger peaks, so Mount Chocorua was the most ambitious summit of the trip. We mainly stuck to valleys and notches; hiking into the Greeley […]Read more "White Mountains of New Hampshire 2011"

The resulting exhibition Stanstead Project, or How to Cross the Border is concerned with geographical and geopolitical borders (as presented by artists Ursula Biemann , Christian Philipp Müller and myself). My work for this exhibition, which […]Read more "Borderlands"

Ridiculously popular on autumn long weekends, it is an especially pleasant hill to go walking around during the shoulder season and on weekdays (or even in the rain, as I have done a few times). Only 45 minutes from Montreal, it offers […]Read more "Mont St. Hilaire"
875 metre Montagne Noire lies in the Saint-Donat region of the Laurentians. A 13km round-trip hike would take you via a pleasant (but wet on our outing) trail from the parking lot to the crash site of the Liberator Harry B-24 bomber, and a small symbolic cemetery for the 20 people who lost their lives […]Read more "Montagne Noire"
I had the fortune to spend 10 days in August driving and hiking around Norway’s Western Fjords. Trips like this drive me nuts! There is so much beautiful landscape, and not enough time to enjoy it. Many short day trips were taken, along with two longer trips (a climb up to 1453m Geitfonnegga, and the […]Read more "Norway 2010"
