Canyon documents the imprint of time and changes it carves into nature’s terrain.
Canyon is a 45-minute video projection of a continuous traveling shot of a winding canyon wall in Glen Canyon, Arizona. Flooded by a dam in 1963, Glen Canyon was submerged under water before being recognized by environmentalists as a natural wonder. After a decade-long drought that brought the levels of Lake Powell to a record low, Glen Canyon is now emerging from the water. This change in water levels, like the man-made lake, is a product of human intervention in the landscape and stands as a testament to the growing instability of nature’s patterns.
