Waterways

Waterways was a sculptural installation intended to commemorate the June flood in Calgary, and to highlight the resilience and strength of the community. It was our way of exploring the power and effects of water, responding to catastrophe with creativity: an environment for contemplative reflection. Created in collaboration with Ivan Ostepenko, Antyx Community Arts Facilitator, Alia Shahab, and three youth.

Waterways was constructed using materials primarily salvaged from the flood-impacted neighborhoods in Calgary, as well as materials found on site in the historic King Edward School. It was built as part of Phantom Wing and the King Edward School Arts incubator initiative of CSapce.

Whats left of the installation was demolished in 2013, along with the entire wing of the school that housed the Phantom Wing project.
