This postcard piece was created in Banff, Alberta during a residency at the Banff Centre. I had gone for a walk and found myself wanting to share something of that experience. Normally my instinct would have been to take a photograph but since I had an injured back, I didn’t carry my camera with me that day. So instead I scribbled down a textual image, and then went back to the studio to work with that text, to create this postcard piece. It was created initially for J.B. but I ended up deciding to send it to other friends as well, as Greetings from Banff.

To my delight, the postcards were postmarked with a Banff hand stamp by the post office.
On September 5th, a month after the initial Greetings from Banff (August 5, 2007) postcard, I decided to play around with my spoken & heard process (using ‘iListen’). And this One Month After postcard was the result of that.
Then on September 6th, this a month and a day after postcard was created using that same spoken & heard process.
