Excerpt from unsettled waters

unsettled waters

video collaboration with Lourdes Duniam

video, 10 minutes, 2016; presented as part of in/Futures at Ontario Place in Toronto, 2016

For the in/Futures exhibition at Ontario Place, Duniam and MacGregor created a video that imagines Lake Ontario taking revenge on the European settlers. The work uses original footage of Lake Ontario and the Toronto harbour combined with excerpts from Hollywood films to create an irreverent imagining of an alternative present of the shores of Lake Ontario.
