WHEN I TOOK the reigns at A\J in January 2012, the first issue I contributed to was themed Art & Media. We've since rebranded the hell out of the publication and made that theme an annual one. The cross-pollination of those two moves led to the May/June 2013 cover above and a far more compelling vision of (and for) made-in-Canada environmentalism. I contributed one of the features to this year's Art & Media lineup, drawing on a handful of documentaries that smacked me upside the head (and heart) at last year's Planet in Focus film festival in Toronto. "How to See Things" is my riff on the useful perspectives and strategies that docs use to rattle the cages of modern civilization.
