Salvage is an exhibition of photography and kinetic sculpture by Vancouver artists Eric Deis and Jeremy Isao Speier. In two distinct styles and media, they examine themes of urban living.

Eric Deis, recipient of the 2007 Visual Art Development Award from the Vancouver Foundation, is known for his work in photography, video art, installation art, sculpture and digital art. His contemporary landscape photography depicts gritty street level debris as well as surreal panoramas of the Vancouver Downtown Eastside shot from vantage points far above the city. Deis’ large-scale photographs immerse the viewer in vivid vistas of colour and fine detail. He is a graduate of the University of California, San Diego (M.F.A.) and Emily Carr Institute, Vancouver, where he currently is an Adjunct Professor of Photography. His work has been exhibited in Canada, Denmark, Germany, Mexico, Serbia, Sweden, and the United States of America.

Japanese-Canadian artist Jeremy Isao Speier is also a graduate of Emily Carr Institute. He is a three-time award recipient of the Filmmakers Assistance Program from the National Film Board of Canada. Speier uses obsolete and self-made technology, narratives, images and visual models to transform manufactured objects into kinetic sculpture. Speier developed his new series of work using hand-made electronic circuits and a 556/Logic timer-chip during his recent residency at the Western Front.
