The Don at Dawn, The Humber at Dusk at The Power Plant, 2022

This site-specific work references the two rivers that border Toronto's downtown to the east and west. Both the Don (south of Bloor St.) and the Humber (along Black Creek) had sections straightened by settlers for industrial usage. Using 18th Century maps, I traced their paths before they were channelized and placed them on windows facing the present day rivers below. As the sun rises and sets, its light passes over top each present day river and through the coloured vinyl of their historic version, casting the shadow of their "ghost" into the building.
