Fallen Water Niagara Escarpment
32 channel video installation
commissioned by the city of Toronto for Nuit Blanche 2016
Across dozens of televisions arranged into the shape of a towering waterfall, each screen will display a unique video from one of the aforementioned locations. Referencing the disparate origins of the water that flows into Lake Ontario, these varied waters appear unified in an inverted color space as a constant flow of pink, orange and yellow hues moving downriver from screen to screen. This transformation channels an alternate vision of the province's fresh water, spiritually imbued by the backlit glow of the monitors. Yet the water appears tainted and no longer pure. Waterfalls evoke subconscious associations with pristine water, but what happens when the fountain can no longer renew itself?
