February – May, 2021
Victoria BC, Canada
Our Artist in Residence (AIR) program is one of our experimental forays that arranges a new dialogue between disciplines: what happens when artists expose us to different forms of creativity, while exposed to our world of architecture and design? In the best instances, the project grows in previously unforeseen ways and we all come to see things a little differently than we would otherwise.
A response to the residency theme “Empty City”, this project turned toward the species that share our urban spaces. Photographs were made recording digital projections of endangered animals and plants, within their native habitats, to address the mounting extinction crisis in the province of British Columbia and the Capital Regional District of Victoria specifically.
