thresholds (a longing)
basswood, tissue paper, dope

A site specific installation that explores the innate in-betweeness of airports; a space where the strange and familiar intermingle in the fleeting, in-transit narratives of travelers drifting between homecoming and departure. The models are speculative propositions of passage, that embody different states of being between, dwelling (the permanence of home) and departure (transitional and precarious). Harnessing the flux of scale that travellers experience as they flow between the inward space of contemplation and the otherworldly perspectives from the sky, a multiplicity of vantage points emerge within the assemblage of models. The modular assembly is constructed from segments of basswood and paper, presented as a collection of fragments within a enclosed architectural space of the vitrine.

World-building with children on Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine.
In conjunction with exhibition thresholds (a longing) at Les Îles-de-la-Madeleine, Quebec. Airport

This workshop with children began with beach and forest walks, where we collected materials; branches, shells, flowers, pine cones, rocks and more alongside human-made objects; lobster claw elastics, plastics and glass. These objects formed our material palette. The meta and material associations of these objects stirred playful and potent conversations as children imagined their island homes 30 years into the future.
