Range Light, Borden-Carleton PEI 2010

Sculpture / Installation

Materials: latex rubber, mosquito netting, block and tackle rigging

Range Light Borden-Carleton, PEI, 2010 is a imprint/cast of the interior and exterior of a de-commissioned range light from the town of Borden-Carleton, Prince Edward Island. I have created a cultural artifact out of a dead monument – a sort of counter-memorial to the positive and negative effects of the changes, now enfolding past, present, and future in the gallery space. The title is an epitaph.

The work was cast on location with the help of many. Much thanks to Alistair Rance, Aaron Sinclair, Sarah Robinson, Susan Wolfe and Bruce Anderson.
