I create work based on environmental history both natural and constructed about the land that I live on. My current practice is informed by living on Toronto Island, a short ferry trip from the City of Toronto, and having first-hand experience with environmental and shoreline changes due to natural and human activity. The wire project is part of ongoing work about urban history, memory and a changing environment, and is based on a collection of small twisted wire fragments found on an urban landfill site created circa 1950 to 1990 from remnants of demolished buildings and homes in Toronto. I think of this landfill site as a ruin that holds memories and stories of a city. This work was started in 2020 and continues.
