Drift traces the places I frequented between the summers 2021 and 2022. When coming across a wave tossed and polished piece of charcoal glistening in the sun and considering the many washed up logs on the beach and their multiple lives, this speck of charred wood spoke to me of transformations. Ironically I was back in the city during the winter for a brief period of time and I gathered some driftwood in waters around Vancouver. I hauled them all the way up to Cortes. I like thinking about the many lives held within a material or object such as here the forest, the clearcut, logs at sea, the travelling routes. I chiselled and polished the form down to a roundish shape and charred it, another evocation of transformation as well as the forest fires. I polished it with cedar oil in hope to create a sheen to reflect light. Drift is an amalgamation of moving light, woody matter and the porous in-between space of shape shifting.
