While at Banff Centre, I explored relationships between architecture, scale, and environmental impact. I calculated my daily carbon footprint and translated this data into various forms of equivalent volume. This large house shaped sculpture represents a single day of my carbon footprint. Titled “I am the Magpie” (as magpies live within close proximity to where they were born), it will become the foundation for and outdoor installation upon returning to Quesnel, BC.
