Digging a hole, a ribbon of steel

Featuring a moment in time during a train journey across the Canadian landscape, this work draws on interests in various notions of labour – empty/useless, obsolete, manual, migrant, ritualized, and repetitive. Thinking about the legacy of Chinese-Canadian labourers with the building of the railway across the country, I am interested in the relationship to a national history of forgetting and amnesia as a cultural condition.
