Driftwood

I reclaimed the driftwood from the Atlantic Ocean while traveling to a resettled community off the coast of Newfoundland. Its dislocation and recontextualization in a gallery space are analogous to the forced migration of the Resettlement Acts implemented after the province joined Canada in 1949. Real-time data collected from a buoy introduces an intimate experience of presence that challenges the presumption that resettled communities have no great future.
