Invisible Territories


During a three-month urban ecology research-based residency, we mapped thousands of actual and potential sites for animal opportunites within a Calgary neighbourhood. At the conclusion of the residency we proposed to The City of Calgary that we salvage the brick chimneys of twelve houses slated for demolition to maintain the habitat of hundreds of small birds. The modified chimneys would be installed in their original locations on stilts, thereby retaining the animal habitat and creating a reminder of the now missing human houses.
