80 seconds in Toronto: invisible river

80 seconds in Toronto: invisible river is a 16mm film loop & 35mm slide installation. "Based on field researches and researches in a local library in Toronto, I filmed specific places in the local environment of Wallace Emerson, Pelham Park, Carleton Village, Regal Heights, Wychwood, Davenport and Dovercourt Park. My focus was not so much on the social or the economic aspect of those areas and its urban landscape, but the geological aspect of it. The question was: If the glaciers of Ontario’s geological past have disappeared are there still visible or invisible traces of them? Do we register the geological history of our immediate surroundings? And, do we look at them differently if we know about it?"—Andreas Wutz
