On The Line Book
On The Line refers to an ecological frontier. It is described in this book by the road that lays behind a typology of burnt trees. The road is significant because 6 months earlier, it was the site of Canada’s largest mass evacuation. 80,000 people were evacuated as a hellfire approached an urban service area and residence swarmed onto the sole access road to escape.
A considered design holds the pictures within the trunk of a burnt jack pine from the suburb of Beacon Hill. It is a large scale book, a tactile experience of materials that include; vegetable ink, uncoated papers, cotton, discarded coffee cups, embossing and meticulous processes from 120 negative film to the printing press.
