From the first visits to the Valley I have made photographs of the tidal landscape of Fundy and Minas Basin. A selection of 32 of those were shown in a multimedia installation in the Fall of 2010 at the Art Gallery of Acadia University. This was a significant departure in my solitary photographic practice as it involved the collaborative effort of poets, a composer, a sound specialist, a recording specialist as well as actors and singers to read the poetry, in addition to myself. The experience led to new personal insight into dealing with the place of photography in relation to other art media to achieve a specific purpose.
Thus an art based project would become a stimulus for individuals to explore the history and better understand the potential of the Annapolis Valley as a great place to live, have families and start new enterprises that take full advantage of the opportunities of the growing IT technologies.
