This last Friday, I had the pleasure to chat with Aryen Hoekstra. We discussed his exhibit Above the clouds which has been showing at 180 Projects and which was closing that night, in Sault Ste. Marie. As a Third year undergraduate, my artistic language is still somewhat limited, so it was an amazing opportunity to sit down and listen to Aryen. I am still trying to compute everything that I have seen. I imagine that it will take a while for all this new information to settle in my mind. I was so fortunate to have this opportunity and again, I want to thank Aryen for his generosity.
