An environmental art project creating site-specific ephemeral art in response to seven sites
on Salt Spring Island, inviting viewers to journey to the sites and sharing their photos on
The Salt Spring Island Wayfinding Project is a series of seven site specific ephemeral works created in response to seven sites on Salt Spring Island. The heart, or hub, of the work is at the main entrance to Mahon Hall on Rainbow Road. Here viewers will find an installation of photographic banners, one for each of the site works. The banners have a QR code printed in the left hand corner that, when scanned with a Smart Phone, will go to the corresponding website page for the work. Directions to the site and an artist statement are included on each of the web pages. Viewers are invited to journey to the sites and share their photos on Instagram* #ssiwayfindingproject
Each of the works is ephemeral and created with materials found at that the site. They will all eventually disappear, some sooner than others, and become reintegrated into the sites.
The Salt Spring Wayfinding Project was created for first annual Land Art Exhibition at Mahon Hall
