is a space to observe the quiet presence of nature that is entangled, but often
overlooked in urban coastal environments.
Imagery in this sculptural animation is sourced from field guides that
describe the biodiversity in Southern Coastal Vancouver Island. These taxonomic samples were scanned and translated into a silkscreen print, which
becomes illuminated through LED lighting. Imagery of varying flora and fauna
bursts forward and then quickly recedes, disappearing from view and becoming
transparent. In this process of disappearance, imagery collages itself back
into the environment that rests behind the shelter.
