2019 // Spark Box Studio, Picton, ON.

Flowing from day to night, ocean waves to lobster feast to evening campfire, Beach Feast explores my memories of Atlantic Canadian beaches. Rooted in my sensory-based experiences of Maritime culture and landscape, projected video, found objects and audio mimic the sights and sounds of a typical day at the beach.

Projection mapped sequences recall distinct times of day, and their related activities. Sticks are balanced using rope, netting, twine, and rocks as counterweights to emulate driftwood shelters.

In using found materials as signifiers of place and landscape, the viewer’s experience is ultimately dissonant from my own; calling to question the nature of representation in simulated experiences, and the potential of memories to inspire built environments.
