Indicators of Tread, 2017.

Digital C-Print Photographs + Flagging Tape + Plywood + Wood Dowels + Graphite + Spray Paint + Acrylic Varnish


This work presents an interpretation of wayfinding in Fundy National Park. Flagging tape provides us, often unconsciously, with the necessary guidance to seek individual and shared experiences in nature. By highlighting the critical role that trail markers and maps have in setting a prescribed experience for park visitors, this work reinterprets GPS coordinates taken on three distinct trails: Upper Salmon River, Tracey Lake, and East Branch. Each three-dimensional work is scaled down at 1:2000; representing distances hiked, my heading relative to North, position in the park, and altitude.

In 2017, Indicators of Tread was exhibited at Fundy National Park as part of the group student exhibition “Landmarks” in coordination with Canada 150, and was featured on Created Here Magazine’s website in the article “Art Elevates: Fundy National Park” by Victoria MacBeath in May 2021.
