“Metalized Precipitation, Seven Billion Individual Diamonds of Untenable” is the third in a series of large, multi-projector, installation works. More than a dozen diapositive film slides of locations around Calgary are projected on a large wall, appearing as a strange but plausible diorama. As the viewer moves through the space they modify that image by blocking some or all of the images emanating from projectors, both casting their shadow on the wall and becoming a new projection surface. The work is, in part, a response to our complicated relationship with carbon.
