Living Canvas

This is completely off topic for drug policy, but as many of you know, I have a number of different active parts of my life. One of them is a performance company called The Living Canvas, which has specialized in performances utilizing the human body as a canvas for projected textures and images. In addition to it being a unique art form, it has also had a side benefit of promoting body acceptance and self-confidence among both performers and audiences. I plan on incorporating the company as a full non-profit this summer.

The Living Canvas was fortunate enough to catch the attention of a BuzzFeed producer, who produced a segment focusing on our most recent performance – a short 10-minute thing at a student event on campus. It has provided a bit of sudden internet fame, as BuzzFeed has a lot of followers.

For those who are interested, here is the BuzzFeed segment — the video is part of a larger video about “How to Like Yourself as a Grownup.”

    Beefsquatch likey like! Seemed to be popular in the Sixties, except you don’t have the subjects gyrating to evil hippie music.
    Didn’t Roger Corman use this technique in “The Trip”?

    Art that empowers is AWESOME, and so are instructors who inspire. BRAVO!

  • nice… and I’m not sure I’ve heard Pete’s voice before. Props to you Pete!

    So, Pete, this is my question- do YOU dance naked?

    • Pete leads our nude couch dance troupe!

        No. Please, no. That isn’t how a “Couch Dance” is supposed to go (there’s a strip club down in Seattle that advertises “Couch Dances”). Duncan needs little encouragement.
        We see enough of Pete Bulkner without his pants on. Do you want to be like Pete B.? That’s right. I didn’t think so.
