I have been collecting and documenting fragments of wire from Leslie Spit, an artificial land spit which is part of the City of Toronto, and that extends into Lake Ontario. The Spit was created from the dumping of demolished downtown buildings and lake dredgings circa 1950 to 1990. The Spit has naturalized over the decades. The wire as a representation of the history and memory of the City is what interests. I am also fascinated by the reshaping of the wire from the demolition process but I suspect primarily from weather and environment over the decades. The work is shown as individual images and as grids. This project is ongoing.
