Secrets of an Ever Changing Landscape

Artists: Gary Blundell and Victoria Ward

In the fall of 2016, Gary Blundell and Victoria Ward of @hotspurstudio "took over" our Instragram account (@LakeshoreGrnds). During this time they posted a series of 24 images inspired by the history and changing landscape of the Lakeshore Grounds. The collection is now available in its entirety below.

Pigeon

Archival photo and cut out paper pigeon The area was known for the passenger pigeons that would gather and swoop over the shoreline. Their now mythic presence is honoured by the Aboriginal name Mimico or originaly Amimika. Their extinction has become a more significant event over time as it signals how the landscape is such a big part of how we have evolved.
