  • Inspired by William Harbeck's 1907 film that records the streetcar view in downtown Vancouver, this work captures the unremarkable activity that represents the city at this time: cycling, and the seawall. The time-lapse super 8 film documents the urban coastline from Crab Park on the city's Downtown Eastside to Kits Beach. Using a bicycle specially adapted to hold a vintage super 8 camera, the artist makes her way along the seawall and then edits the film segments into a high speed tour of the perimeter of the city.
