Article in The Record

Robert Reid write a fine article about the project for The Record:
UW prof wins award for project probing the mystery of Tom Thomson’s canoe

He showed up for our meeting in an Alogonquin Park hat, so I knew it was going to be a serious interview. Here’s a sample form the article:

O’Gorman contends that Thomson viewed his canoe as a canvas, not unlike the panels and canvases on which he painted his landscapes. In the process, Thomson’s canoe became a moveable landscape within a landscape.

I didn’t say the part about “a landscape within a landscape.” Rob did. Nice.

There article also featured a photo of the portage downtown with Pouya. Pouya, by the way, has been working away on the backend for the interface. More on that later.
