Janice Tanton's 2011 TEDxCalgary Talk on The Language of The Creator. Focused on meaningful personal, family, community and organizational building through creative language of the arts, this heartfelt, personal artist's talk seeks to inspire you to consider human ways of being together.
Tanton's Red Canoe Series is all about perfection, movement and change which forever surround us so it seems quite apropos that these are her first finished works for 2011. For thousands of years, the canoe has been the perfect model of perfect design, where form and function cannot be improved upon and relate directly to the intended use. Aboriginal people all across Canada and in other countries around the world, understood the value and intrinsic spirituality of this vessel. In it's original form, regionally refined, the canoe is the most perfect design in all respects. It allowed for survival and transportation in harsh conditions using indigenous natural materials in a sustainable way.
