This is a partial video of the work we showed for the Open House in Blairmore, and at the Blueprint Gallery in Lethbridge. It is a house we constructed out of scrap lumber, covered with white cotton, and projected images onto. Latifa made the sound component, which emanates out from inside of the house.
Ephemeral Home documents our collaborative experience as artists-in-residence at the Gushul Studio, in the Crowsnest Pass, in September of 2011. It has been our home away from home, both increasingly familiar and surreal. As a collaborative experience living in close proximity with someone who was not so long ago a stranger, this installation documents our shared feelings and experiences as we relate to each other, and our new environment.
Thank you, Trap/Door, for the amazing opportunity!
Thank you especially to Mike, for orchestrating it all, and letting us stay at your house.
Also, thanks to Blueprint Gallery for hosting our show in Lethbridge!
A special thank you to Krisztina, Kristin, and everyone else we met in Blairmore!
And last, I’d like to say thank you to Latifa, for being so open and sharing, smart and entertaining, and a pleasure to be around. I think I’ve made a good friend.
