Since 2006, with Christine Sullivan, he created a series of works exploring description and narration, including 'The Bill Burroughs Memorial Choir', and 'Conversation Piece' in 'Hlysnan' at Casino Luxembourg in Luxembourg.

Natalie Lauchlan is a Calgary-based emerging artist. She received her BFA in Craft and Emerging Media from the Alberta College of Art and Design in 2014. Through the connection with space, the connections of words, the connection with self; her work exists both in the present and in the past, a reflection inwards to oneself and a projection outwards to the world, a cooperation between cyclical and stagnant, between time and memory.
