This work began in my mouth with my voice and moved down to my feet, and the earth. Writing Landscape is a series of images that were created between my body and the land. The finished product consists of three parts. A series of copper plates that were marked up when I wore them on my feet walking over the land, a series of prints that were produced from the copper plates, and this video of my performance of walking. Together, these images constitute an exploration of the relationship between my identity as an indigenous woman and Turtle Island. My project took place in three locations: Toronto, Ontario; Thamesville, Ontario; and Pangnirtung, Nunavut. I chose these locations specifically for their historical and contemporary significance.
