The Ministry of Casual Living Satellite Gallery – the latest incarnation of this well-loved artist-run space (now 12 years old) – is the location for Aubrey Burke’s Story Booth Project. Burke has an undergraduate degree from UVic’s Visual Arts Department. He’s also a professional clown, a violinist, an artist and an arts organizer who has been very active on the scene for several years.

This new project is typical of Burke’s creative approach, which always manages to maintain a sweet balance between the public and the personal, and always seems to incorporate a love of community mixed with a touch of magic. In this case, members of the public are invited down to the gallery to tell stories in a small recording booth. These stories will provide the sound tracks and the inspiration for Burke’s shadow puppet shows. Edited together, the resulting videos of sound and shadows will be projected at night as a street-level installation for the general (and probably unsuspecting) public.

Burke writes: “The Story Booth Project is a community-based multimedia art project where we record people’s histories, then pair them with videos that depict the narratives. Stories can be real, city-specific, urban legend, marginalized pasts, and contemporary folklore! Because we are not tied to a funding body, we are just going let the project organically evolve into what people want and need.”
