  • A composite portrait based on interviews with caretakers at the University of Calgary, the idea for this installation grew out of the artist's desire to see public billboards of stories that are never told publicly, and of people who are never seen in the media. Identity is reconfigured through the lens of race, class, culture and age; invisible lives are made public.
