  • This site specific installation explores Toronto's orientation to its watershed and ravine system.

    To consider this work a map is to confront the city's ecology. The sculpture strives to break the convention of urban cartography to remind us of the geography beneath our paved roads and city blocks. Instead of the repetitive grid of city streets, the surface is etched with ghostly homages to the lost rivers of Toronto. The work asks residents of the region

    "Where is your watershed address?"
