open wi (Quebec student strike)

November 8th, 2012 § 0 comments § permalink

Earlier this spring I was heavily involved, both academically and in the streets, in the Quebec-wide student strike. Several of us at the Mobile Media Lab at Concordia decided to put out a special “open” issue of wi: journal of mobile media. This resulted in two issues, which I co-edited with Owen Chapman, Alison Reiko Loader, Ben Spencer and Kim Sawchuk.

Click on the image to move through the issues. I also have an anonymous story of my arrest, a photo essay of the casseroles in St-Henri (my hood) and some prose (on being on the street & tear gassed repeatedly & having my bike broken) included.














To celebrate the strike ending, these two issues & a special issue of Theory & Event — Printemps Érable – Quebec’s Maple Spring of 2012— Volume 15, Issue 3 Supplement – Fall 2012, edited by Darin Barney, Brian Massumi, and Cayley Sorochan, we threw a party at Alexandraplatz & I made a short video with Safia Siad of the party.

On Quebec Student Strike / open wi

August 13th, 2012 § 1 comment § permalink

Earlier this summer, my supervisor Kim Sawchuk, Owen Chapman,  Alison Loader, Ben Spencer and I, created a special issue of wi: journal of mobile media, called open wias a response to the student strike movement in Quebec. I also contributed some writing and photography. It’s a good time to let the rest of the world know that the day before the fall semester starts (attempts to start?), elections are happening in Quebec on September 4. Don’t let politics take advantage of you.
