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.
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.
was also exhibited during the festival.
