1. Project for Public Spaces vice president, Ethan Kent, talks about differences between project-driven cities and what can happen when communities are engaged in the creation of urban space.

    The New York based Placemaking expert spent two days in Adelaide last week speaking to the city’s planners, precinct groups, police and transport lobby groups about how they could work with communities to activate areas of the city.

    “A Placemaking approach is a transformatively different approach to planning cities,” Kent said.

  2. Over the years I have been inspired by my personal travels and popular documentaries like Planet Earth. I’d watch the various episodes for hours, developing my shooting style from what I saw. After the creation of Toronto Tempo last year I had the opportunity to jump around to many different countries and work on diverse and intriguing projects. When I came back to Toronto I was approached by Tourism Toronto to create a short piece on the city. They wanted to do something entirely different, they wanted to come away from the standard tourism video, so I figured I would step as far away from those videos as possible. I felt like it was the perfect opportunity to push my shooting style by employing a purely observational perspective. I intended to capture the city in distinctive form— I wanted to make this piece different.

    By utilizing time-lapse photography and slow motion to capture intimate moments, I was able to draw attention to what we might overlook, or only offer a passing glance to. I want to represent how we move through the city; how the weather moves through it and how the city breathes, transforms and grows each day. Much like other cities, Toronto is a place you have to experience to feel the energy and emotion that pulses through the streets and neighbourhoods. I hope that I can give you a brief glimpse of the beauty, and motivate you to come explore for yourself.

    Thank you to my family and friends for the endless support. Thank you to everyone who has enjoyed and shared my videos this past year.

  4. It seems that every month brings a big new development in San Francisco's tech scene, and with those developments comes more outcry that the city's working class isn't seeing the benefits of the re-configuring economy. This is a reprise of what happened during San Francisco's first dot com boom. Many young people who are part of the new economy see the transformation as natural and necessary, while others say it's disastrous for the city.

  5. Please watch in Fullscreen & HD with sound for best quality.

    Cityscape Chicago is a personal timelapse piece consisting of over 30,000 still photographs shot on the Canon 5D Mark III incrementally between July and October 2012 around downtown Chicago, Illinois.

    The inspiration of this piece was my fascination with the city of Chicago, particularly at night. For me, there has always been a mysterious sort of feeling to Chicago at night, so I decided to explore and capture it.
