DAISY GRAHAM & CHLOE LUNDRIGAN // floodscape

Installation Info

floodscape is the culmination of a summer-long exchange of audio material between artists—a portrait of two geographically opposed coastal communities lovingly made from samples of both their natural and constructed environments. Combining the practicalities of digital media with the values of ethical foraging and eco art, floodscape explores the impact of industry and through-traffic tourism on the acoustic environment non-intrusively and without physical residue. Drawing inspiration from the floodplains of the Bay of Fundy and the Georgian Straight and their parallels to our collective digital limits, periphery, in this work, is defined as a non-objective, cyclical edge—the shifting space between centered and other, and the opportunity to explore what lies in between.

 

Bio

Daisy Graham (any/all) is an emerging artist making peace with space, sound, noise, and movement in digital and analog iterations. They work intermittently between craft practices, relational performance, and ambient ephemera, seeking connections to social and ecological organisms. Daisy currently lives and works on Vancouver Island, ancestral home to the lək̓ʷəŋən People, known today as the Esquimalt and Songhees Nations; hails from Niitsitapi, Treaty 7 territory of the Piikani, Kainai, and Siksika, known as Southern Alberta; and learns in Mi’kma’ki, the unceded and ancestral homelands of the Mi’kmaq. Land, environs, their history, and the reciprocity we owe to it proves insistent on every version of these themes. 

Chloe Lundrigan (they/them) is an emerging artist from the marshlands of Sackville, New Brunswick, traditionally known as Mi’kma’ki, the ancestral and unceded land of the Mi’kmaq. Their work currently explores abstract timekeeping and queer domesticity through sound collage, sculptural mimicry, and improvised movement.
