  • absence presence place is a work that investigates 3 separate abandoned sites in around the Kelowna, BC. It derives its concept from the idea of the temporary and wasteful ways in which humans interact with their natural and man-made environments. Each of the 3 locations the video is filmed at conveys their own sense of history, loss, time passage and abandonment. Each location is given its own colour code as represented in the video spectrum Red, Green and Blue –but each site shares –their consumed and discarded existence.
