Landmarks 2017

On the occasion of Canada’s 150th anniversary, Landmarks 2017 was a national project including undergraduate and graduate students and were asked to respond to the history and meaning of our country, which was to be displayed in a site specific location. I used a CNC router to make the body of coin-operated binoculars and played a stereoscopic stop motion animation of a contemporary parable depicting the treatment of sacred spaces inside the sculpture. Along with this piece, I performed the story in John 9:1-12, in which a man’s sight is restored when mud is applied to his eyes by Jesus. These videos can be seen by scanning the QR code.
