Disturbed Sites

Distrubed Sites investigates the ecology of post-industrial spaces (and other areas disturbed by human activity) revealing stories that take a long view of history. This project is currently situated in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia, and includes documentation of plant life followed by physical interventions into the landscape. Interventions take the form of community workshops focused on identification and control of invasive plant species (Angelica sylvestris).
