The result of a 8,000-kilometer artistic quest, made on bicycle across Canada, from Vancouver, B.C. to St. John's, Newfoundland. This bicycle quest followed a very strict gathering process. The results: a sound sculpture made-up of 60 loudspeakers on stands, a tape player and a two-hour sound loop, a wall piece made up of 83 photo objects, a sequence of 60 boxes/observatories containing the found/chosen objects, with their own lighting system. Two other sculptural elements accompany the installation.
