WE GROW TOGETHER
Commissioned by the University of Alberta for the Bank of Canada, this sculpture was part of an unveiling ceremony for the new $10 polymerbill in November 2013. As the bill features the Canadian, a well-known train, a request was made to have the sculpture made of railroad spikes.
Video Installation (mounted projection and sound system), using shaped and painted wood screens. Proposal for the Strathcona County Art Gallery@501.
ALONG THE SEAM
Drumheller Miner's Memorial
The proposed transformation of this urban park space included barrier-free access to interpretive plaques listing miners who lost their lives during the 100 years of mining in the Drumheller area. The composition of the plaques represents a seam of coal which trails underground and out of sight.
