Housenumber_street.jpg explores imagery of houses in Kitchener Waterloo that have been demolished. The work confronts the viewer with images from multiple time periods and a recognition of the areas changing landscape. Through the collection of content from online archives, google street view, shared photographs, found images, and visualization of personal stories, this work engages multiple references to reconstruct place. The work crystallizes this content to create simplified house shaped sculptures that are filled with light.
