Line of Work collection

Line of Work is composed of a series of stainless steel frames supporting laminated yellow cedar elements that cantilever increasingly in reach and angle outwards from their base. The installation spans over 110?, each element is 20? tall and varies from 2-8? in depth. There are 17 elements in total; the 15 in the centre represent 150 years of British Columbia’s provincial history plus one at either end representing BC’s past and future. The wood elements are carved with occupations that follow this rough time line, moving from pre-1850s through to post 2010, reflecting larger scale shifts in the provincial economy: from occupations surrounding natural resource extraction toward processing and manufacturing and finally into service and technology. The piece includes both general and specific occupations, to chart larger cultural shifts and to include meaningful individual examples. via
