Topophilia | 2013 - 2014

The body of work explores the theme of Topophilia, a term coined by geographer Yi-Fu Tuan, defined as “emotional connections between physical environment and human beings.” Topo (place) philia (love of) or the sense of places, entwines the idea of natural environment with human emotions or memory. Over the course of one year in Lunenburg, NS, the artist wandered in the landscapes and explored the notions of nostalgia and human connections with nature.
