On May 24th Paul Walde was awarded the Univeristy of Victoria REACH Award for Creativity and Artistic Expression. The Award recognizes a significant project or body of work that furthers knowledge or awareness of the human condition. The award citation included following: “While the history of Canadian art has been built on our relationship with landscape and the environment, Paul Walde has fused that artistic legacy with decidedly 21st-century concerns and practices by exploring unexpected interconnections between landscape, identity and technology. Since joining UVic in 2012, he’s enhanced the student experience with these skills while expanding his reputation as one of Canada’s leading extended media artists.”
