It goes without saying that the last few years have been hard for so many people. Throughout the pandemic, the invasion of Ukraine, the uncovering of mass grave sites across the country, and the degradation of our environment people have become so divided. In a time when we needed unity the most we chose sides based on vaccinations, immigration laws, religion, and the economy.
That division was abundantly clear here in Revelstoke’s rural community, a diverse town where the long-established ways of the railway stand alongside the influx of artists and freethinkers. As things start to get back to “normal” we all seem to be remembering that there is community in diversity.
Confluence is a multi story projection which celebrates the many diverse groups that make up our mountain town. By following the river in a visual journey through time we pay homage to the diverse groups which have shaped Revelstoke, and celebrate the joining of these many rivers.
