EXCAVATION (closer to where we begin)

In the summer of 2017, I was thrilled to be invited by LabSpace to devise an installation for Sculpting New Reads as part of the Word on the Street Festival.

Excavation (…closer to where we began), embraces the theme of connectedness across epochs of large-arc narratives and multiplicitous events, and is inspired by the lush, intimate, visceral, layered, fleeting and indelible histories found within Lisa Richter’s evocative book of poetry, ‘Closer To Where We Began’. My response to Richter’s meandering investigation into personal memories and imaginings brings to mind both an excavation and a labyrinth, a labyrinth of revelations and unravellings, within which, 5” high 3D images of the poet inhabit a range of metaphoric and suggestive worlds.

In January 2018, I was honoured to be part of the vibrant Toronto Design Offisite Festival (TODO), during which I remounted Excavation (…closer to where we began) and was very happy to have it tagged by DesignLines Magazine as a Festival Favorite.
