Explosion in motion

With summer in the air, that also means it's time for my favorite local festival, the Ottawa Explosion! I was much engaged with personal matters at the start of the month, and I didn't get to see as much of the festival as I'd like, but I still caught a good chunk of what was going on at SAW Gallery, starting with a performance from Spell. Here's Kai!
