  • Four-channel video installation featuring documentation of the artist performing in semi-vacant lots around False Creek and on the site of the Vancouver Olympic Village residential complex. Recomposing the usual co-extensive body/environment relationship, the artist’s performative action, rolling across the spaces, serves as a radically empirical mode of measurement, challenging the more typical measures of land value (rental, capital, and market) and the possibilities of vertical urban development. Playing with the captured video footage in postproduction, its malleability expands the accomplished performative actions and highlights the rhythmic and dynamic properties of the sites through a process of spatiotemporal restructuring.
