Fundy (2019)

Fundy
A projet by Valerie LeBlanc and Daniel H. Dugas

Learning that July 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the Apollo 11 moon landing and the famous quote: “ … one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind,” we decided to combine our own voyages to capture the spirit of places in and surrounding the Fundy biosphere with this out-of-world historic event.

We set out to explore a wide range of sites within and surrounding the Fundy Biosphere. Our attention was drawn in many directions throughout this multi-season project. Visiting sites in both New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, we began to focus on the various sedimentary rock formations surrounding the Bay. We began to perceive sites with red rock as Martianesque landscapes.

As the project developed, we decided to incorporate the idea of astronaut explorers making observations at specific sites. In essence, Fundy is a project with a focus on nature and human intervention into natural settings. Through it, we have examined boundaries designated by humans and the natural flow moving back and forth through tides, winds, and winged migrations. Through this close-up look at the Fundy biosphere, we observed many of the cycles that are endlessly repeated through time and seasons. Overall, Fundy comments on the value of our planetary home.

The completed project contains 15 short videos. Some photographs have been posted on the website and other composite photographs have been set aside for exhibition during screenings/gallery installations. The videos are currently password protected (to the public) while we apply to screen/exhibit the works.
