Viewfinder: Prince George
University of Northern British Columbia,
BC Festival of the Arts, 1998
Prince George, British Columbia

The Viewfinder: Prince George is located at The University of Northern British Columbia in Prince George.

This Viewfinder project echoes the Viewfinder: Kelowna and was a part of the artworks exhibition at the BC Festival of Arts 1998. During the festival
the main gallery held photographs of the Viewfinder: Kelowna project and a spiral was built, on the floor of the gallery, from materials gathered in Prince George as well as from stones brought from Kelowna.

The Viewfinder itself, is made of windfall poplar branches native to the Prince George area, and looks across approximately 1.5 miles to Connaught Hill Park where the spiral portion of the project can be found. The spiral in Connaught Hill Park was made of stones gathered on both sides of the Prince George sites and also included stones from Kelowna.

Visitors to the gallery were given maps and encouraged to visit both of the Viewfinder sites in Prince George as well as The Raft site at UNBC.

Memory Box was also exhibited during the festival.
