Abstract:

The Port Lands, situated minutes from downtown Toronto, is unexplored by most local residents. The landscape is industrial and post-industrial, made of shifting mountains of gravel and salt; nature has moved in where industry has moved out and recreation co-exists beside working cement plants. The objective of this interdisciplinary art project is to advocate for the waterfront district’s unique character, shaped by the contradictory influences of industry, nature and recreation. This project builds upon notions of interconnectedness and emplacement espoused in the disciplines of art, cultural geography, and landscape urbanism. It explores how an artist with a walking art practice uses her method of multisensory investigation to advocate for a feral landscape.
