Additional Information

I won’t deny I have been lost here before! I often go out in my kayak, partly because I like the connection and the slowness of it, and partly because I am afraid I don’t know the routes well enough…here be shoals! Coming back in from exploring the edges of the open you can often find me paddling up to docks to check the cottage number, and my map, on the way back, not having paid enough attention to where the channels are on the way out. I am working on it.
This piece is a part of a series that explores place through personal mapping. Part obsessive route planning, part dreaming of travelling the waterways of Pointe au Baril, these works sit in tension with themselves. Just as my presence in this place affects the ecosystems that make it so special, so to, the birchbark resists itself and the thread holding it together, stable yet fragile.
