Water Drawings is a photographic and video documentation of an ephemeral land art/performance project taking place in Georgian Bay. The general themes are social and environmental. There is an obvious contradiction between momentary gestures by us as artists and the duration of the massive natural geological environment in which this action occurs; the billions of years that it took to develop the backdrop of rock formations against the tiny frame of existence in which the human culture has been able to produce objects. The Great Lakes are an iconic part of Canada, an ecosystem that is distinctive in the world. As newcomers to this country and residents of Ontario, we are continually overwhelmed by the scale, the wonder, and the sheer vastness of this region. That greatness has a profoundly humbling effect, paradoxically bringing us back to our human scale.
