sorrow is coyote / in the rearview mirror
Coyote was a two-week project that took place in Yukon, in May 2013.
One loose rule I set for the project were to stay outdoors except for the gallery and grocery stores.
The intent was to camp around a section of land where I used to live in a community called Marsh Lake, to get a better understanding of my relationship with the place.

Another of my rules was to occasionally leave the place and return to Whitehorse and mark my movements in the gallery, by using material objects that I was finding on the site.
It started taking so long to mark my routes, that I couldn’t return to Marsh Lake to really do the work. The route quickly closed in on the gallery, where I eventually ended up cooking in the backyard, and washing my clothes in the bathroom sink of the gallery.
