The Wandering Island: The Rock Ford
The second in a series of short documentaries about The Wandering Island and multi year art project. One of the permanent artworks on Elbow Island takes the form of a rock ford – essentially, stepping stones to help visitors cross a secondary channel of water. Before the project, this ephemeral stream was dry except during high-flow months. After the project, the stream will flow all year round, and visitors will be able to cross the stream using stepping stones.
The Wandering Island: An invitation
The Wandering Island is a site-specific project conceived for Elbow Island, a Calgary/Mohkínstsis park located beneath 4th Street Bridge, balancing precariously between city + nature, land + river, public + private, camouflaged + forgotten. The Wandering Island has a mandate to create slow art for the audience of birds, bats, beaver, fish, and the occasional curious wanderer. This project is guided by local artists Lane Shordee, Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett. This short documentary by Calgary filmmaker Ramin Eshraghi-Yazdi is one of a collection of short films to be released throughout the project and acts as an introduction and invitation to the project. www.wanderingisland.ca
