Reality Check

  • Claim:

    A book to memorialize Toronto's Galleria Mall with captioned photographs plus fascinating shopping mall content.

  • Reality:

    The mall is still open, so please note that these images are not taken from a historic perspective, but instead as recently as 2013 and 2014. Although the Galleria represents nostalgia, there may be missed opportunity of true documentation, unless the book includes pictures from all decades.

Bottom Line

The idea of documenting a historic local establishment is always a welcomed undertaking. With this Galleria campaign, the campaign may miss several opportunities to document the Galleria in its entirety by primarily focusing on images taken in the last 10% of the lifespan.

Lost And Crowned

At the beginning of the summer I wanted to create something that featured a light-up element to wear to festivals and events. I made the light blue crown that you see in some of these pictures featuring LED lights that lit the whole thing up. I found that: Lots of people wanted to wear or try the crown out Two people tried to steal my crown It was a great help in dark spots such as badly lit festival toilets It worked great as a battery-operated camp fire to huddle around at night If I wore it upside down I looked like a viking warrior

Entry Level Cost: $33.00
