1. A documentary ‘video portrait’ of Phil, a man that, to be honest, doesn’t really deserve to have a film made about him.
    With an entirely improvised interview and approached like many real documentaries, in that the crew didn’t know what they were going to capture when they set out, ‘Phil: A Tribute To A Man’ is an affectionate parody of many of the documentary shorts seen online today.

  2. ʔeləw̓k̓ʷ – Belongings

    c̓əsnaʔəm,; the city before the city is an historic partnership of three Vancouver institutions: the Musqueam Indian Band, the Museum of Vancouver, and the Museum of Anthropology at the University of British Columbia. All three will explore this extremely significant ancient village site on which part of Vancouver was built. In the three different exhibitions, visitors will learn not only about the past, but about Musqueam culture and community today. Dr. Susan Rowley, Jordan Wilson, and Lisa Uyeda at the Museum of Anthropology at UBC (MOA) are working with Dr. Kate Hennessy, Dr. Alissa Antle, Rachael Eckersley, Brendan Matkin, and Reese Muntean at Simon Fraser University’s School of Interactive Arts and Technology to develop an interactive tangible tabletop as a component of the exhibition at MOA, which will run from January to December 2015.

    ʔeləw̓k̓ʷ – Belongings uses tangible replicas of Musqueam belongings excavated from c̓əsnaʔəm, as well as contemporary objects that are a part of everyday Musqueam life to represent the long history of salmon fishing and the continuity of related knowledge at c̓əsnaʔəm. Drawing on contemporary community voices and Musqueam’s ancestral language hən̓q̓əmin̓əm̓, each replica has its own story to tell, which is accessed when placed on the tabletop. By connecting the replicas to visual elements on the salmon cutting table, the table invites visitors to learn about the many cultural and historical meanings of belongings from c̓əsnaʔəm, and about how technological knowledge associated with activities such as salmon fishing have a fundamental place in Musqueam history and persists today as part of everyday life.
