Textile installation featuring dangling silk with photo-transfer. This piece follows the contours of the topographical map of Minister’s Face preserve on Long Island, New Brunswick. Printed on the surface are photographs of its thriving ecology. The different segments of the ecosystem are inextricably linked. Just like elevations on a map, removing just one slice would completely alter the whole.

On display at the NB Museum in Saint John as part of the Nature of Art of Nature exhibit for the Nature Trust of New Brunswick. Exhibit reopening at UNB Art Centre in Fredericton April 12, 2013.
