Canadian Art Trek: Brandon, Manitoba

April 17, 2013

Day 6: Brandon, Manitoba

 As I travelled from Kenora to the border of Manitoba the landscape began to change drastically. Large granite slabs, pine forests and endless lakes transformed into small shrubs and flat expanses of farmland. Surprisingly, this was the location that revealed the most wildlife thus far on my trek. I saw six bald eagles perched in small clumps of forest and white-tailed deer grazing along the roadside. As I neared Brandon, it became increasingly clear how important the rail system is to the economy of this area. Trains stretched for miles along the horizon carrying multi-coloured shipping containers. Today’s artwork was installed in the city of Brandon near the Assiniboine river on the Riverbank Trail System. The material of this work consists of hand-felted merino wool nests.Image
