Berry Season
Berry Season
textile collage and chainstitch embroidery on canvas
50" x 32"

This work was created for the residents who live in Whistle Bend Place, a continuing care home in Whitehorse. It was devised to be a colourful Wayfinding feature, to support the residents in orienting themselves within the building. More than a landmark, it intends to stimulate the senses, awaken memory and entertain the viewer. The landscape, the plants and the gatherers are story prompts to encourage spectators to share their own stories. Most essentially, for all the berry pickers in the audience, there are berries to find and plants to identify.
