Fallen Water Niagara Escarpment
32 channel video installation
commissioned by the city of Toronto for Nuit Blanche 2016
Fallen Water – Niagara Escarpment brings our attention to the worsening global freshwater crisis through an exploration of local waterfalls and waterways flowing towards Lake Ontario. Separate videos on each of the thirty two video screens that form this towering structure display a small video vignette from individual waterfalls along the geologic formation known as the Niagara Escarpment. Videos from Eugenia, Webster, Decew, Niagara Falls, and many others, coalesce into a video and sound installation in the central corridor of Brookfield Place in downtown Toronto. The project ultimately reflects upon the disparate and widespread origin of the province of Ontario's water which makes up one-fifth of the world's remaining fresh water.
