River Cycle /// 2018

River Cycle is a 20 ft illuminated scroll composed of 34 individually illustrated panels sewn together to depict a reimagining of the Biblical flood myth as an epic cyclical narrative of creation and destruction of a civilization along an infinite river of time. The piece aims to disrupts traditional interpretations of the myth by undermining patriarchal and heteronormative undercurrents and reframing it within the context of contemporary climate change within the bioregion of the Grand River Watershed and the colonial legacy that persists there.
