Canadian Art Trek: Chippewa Falls

Canadian Art Trek

 Day 3: Chippewa Falls

 Before I left Sault Ste. Marie I had some difficult decisions to make. How do I make art in nature after a snowstorm? I decided that I would simply deal with whatever conditions I would encounter-nature doesn’t always provide perfect situations. That being said, I spent a great deal of time checking the weather forecast and snow conditions along the Trans-Canada Highway. My best possible location would be a stretch of land between Batchawana Bay Provincial Park and Agawa Canyon. I built today’s work at Chippewa Falls near Batchawana Bay where the snow was only a few centimeters deep. Chippewa Falls is the approximate half-way point of the Trans-Canada highway between St. John’s, Newfoundland and Victoria, British Colombia.

This artwork was carefully installed by climbing out onto a snow covered portion of the Falls. It is constructed from braided material made from old clothing torn into strips. Image
