The silhouette of a mountain and a cloudy sky. A photographic record of the present, at the site of the past. When viewed from afar, this piece evokes the memory of a landscape, yet upon closer investigation, it’s actually a field made up of hundreds of reeds. A study in duality and all that lies between, the past and the present, the concrete and the intangible, the fleeting and the grounded, this piece is part of my ongoing exploration into the myriad layers contained within a story. Working with an image taken from the landscape in which my grandparents lived during their internment as Japanese Canadians in the Second World War, a vista has been recreated and a memory rooted. Yet from all angles, this piece offers only a shifting, fractured reading, nothing is complete or whole, just as no story is ever fully experienced, told or remembered.
