At the Edge of Wilderness

A collaboration with Hildegard Westerkamp, soundscape composer, resulted in a 400-slide, five-projector soundtracked installation entitled At the Edge of Wilderness. This installation, curated by the Western Front, explored the interaction of nature with the remains of some abandoned British Columbia mining communities, mainly in the Kootenays.

Recently, the photos and sound have been edited in a video format available on DVD.
