San Josef Bay (2010) was a collection of photos spanning the years from 1984 to 2010. San Josef Bay is in Cape Scott Provincial Park on the northwestern tip of Vancouver Island, British Columbia, Canada. From the western beach of San Josef Bay, you can hike to Mount St Patrick, which offers a panoramic view of Cape Scott and the surrounding area, when it’s not covered by cloud or fog. The temperate rain forest is home to large moss-covered trees, golden frogs and mushrooms oozing ruby-red liquid onto the forest floor. When spawning coincides with heavy rainfall the salmon follow new rivulets that meander off San Josef River. As the waters recede salmon are left haplessly flopping in the forest (sanjosefbay.com)
tapioca (2011 - 2012) was an assortment of ideas that never found a niche. One comment made by the site was about the date format being used on the world wide web. It stated “Have you ever visited a website, found the information that you were looking for, then checked the date, and found 06/05/01 or 01 05 06 or 10.9.13 or 13-09-10? Most of us have. What exactly do these dates represent?” Unfortunately, that comment is still relevant today. Another interesting piece was about the Excel 97 flight simulator.

Hit your tab key once and you end up in cell M97 4. Press “Ctrl” and “Shift” while clicking on the chart wizard icon (blue/yellow/red bar chart). The flight simulator will now activate. Steer with your mouse, accelerate and decelerate with the left and right mouse buttons (tapio.ca)
