ODE TO THE ARTERIE – 2017 (Burlington, Ontario)
After seeing her work for Daily Tous Les Jours art therapist Sarah Brodie commissioned Muir to produce a short piece for Burlington-based Art Therapy Clinic The Arterie. She created a questionnaire inviting the practitioners (psychotherapists, social workers) to contribute to the lyrical ode she penned and combined it with video capture to create a clip that explained their collective vision.
ODES TO DAILY TOUS LES JOURS – 2016 (Montreal, Québec)
As Digital Storyteller/Artist in Residence at Daily Tous Les Jours Muir produced videos using archival and new material to help explain their creative and technical processes, combining musical composition, archival footage, footage captured on location at Daily and information from the studio members to create dynamic content for social media streams. This playful series helped deepen the connection amongst staff at Daily Tous Les Jours while adding another dimension to their presence on social media.
