ReCALL (2005)

Residency project, Confederation Centre for the Arts, Charlottetown


ReCALL is a video projection¬†in a storefront window in downtown Charlottetown. During the residency, I developed a textual inventory of smells, rhythms, folklore and colloquialisms as the “invisible residue” of place with input from a cross-section of folklorists, librarians, artists, business people and old-timers. The juxtaposition of text, digital images and scanned maps¬†of the island posited the local voice, local traditions, collective knowledge and personal memories in the public arena. Ambient street noises provided a real-time sound scape.
