newspaper, video, audio; Oakville Galleries, Oakville, Ontario, 2002

This site-specific installation was part of a solo exhibition at the Oakville Galleries. Everyday, in the year 2000, I purchased a newspaper and rolled up the front section into granny knots (usually made and used to start a fire). The entire year’s worth of newspaper was displayed on the floor and a video documenting the act was shown over the fireplace. Periodically the sound of a flashover fire filled the room.
