Tower Odyssey: “From Paper Capital to Poetry Capital” (2010-2015)

This project pays tribute to those who built the paper industry, to the immensely gifted poet Alphonse Piché—a person as profound as he was playful, and a leading light for an entire generation—and to the children who are weaving together the threads of our city’s past, present and future. The concept is based on images from recent outdoor shoots, as well as video recordings of the demolition of the Canadian International Paper Company in 2002. The result is a poetic, transcendent creation against a magnificent landscape.
