Four vitrines, small steel boxes, text, photographic images and sound.
Etched into the sides the names of species of trees in both English (“Hazel Alder”) and Latin (“Alnus Serrulata”).
A separate line of text runs along one side of each box, linked together, collectively read
“The road of the / Past and Future /Points. Places in / The Imagination .”
The steel tops of the vitrines have photographic transfers on them
The architectural detail is from Trinity College Dublin, the centre image a scenic view of un-named site in Norther Ontario
A timing system triggers speakers in the boxes.
From each emanates the same a poem by Victor Coleman (read by the poet) and the sound of water.
