ITN 2017: Dominion: 16 TrajectoriesWinnipeg, Manitoba
New/Digital Media , Visual Arts — Behind-the-scenes
This project harvests images from 16 trajectories across the prairie landscape, projecting them into urban space in Winnipeg. Passersby will see flows of moving imagery - captured from digital mapping platforms at satellite, aerial, and ground-level - along with accompanying audio. "16 Trajectories" is part of the larger project "Dominion," supported by the Canada Council and Winnipeg Arts Council, which uses satellite images to explore landscapes marked by the Dominion Land Survey. That's the 19th-century survey that cut up the prairie: a strict grid disrupted back then (and today) by rivers, floods, surveying errors, and contradictory claims to the land. Like its digital image, the landscape depicted in "16 Trajectories" and "Dominion" is full of anomalies, breaks, gaps ... glitches.
This activity is in English & French.
This activity is wheelchair accessible.

I'm an artist, architect and urban designer, and I'm fascinated by images of cities and spaces. My recent artwork explores satellite imagery of geography and landscapes. I find it really interesting how what we humans do to the land, we also do to its image - cutting it up and processing it. My work has been screened in Colombia, Belgium, the UK, as well as Canada; in my life as a designer I work with Ager Little Architects, in Winnipeg.
