Nuit Blanche Ottawa Gatineau 2013 and Janes Walk Ottawa 2014
With this installation, we wanted to explore concepts of memory, the nature of bringing things together & the idea of expansion.
In bringing things together, we asked people to submit videos of spaces they visit or walk through everyday in Ottawa. By simultaneously projecting these videos and allowing them to intersect they create a hybrid collective memory of Ottawa.
By creating a hybrid space of Ottawa Places (those paces given special meaning by our experiences within them) we are both expanding the collective definition of Ottawa and expanding this room beyond its walls to encompass all of Ottawa instead of just it’s physical dimensions.
