Five Circle Project: Vancouver
CBC Television Studios, Vancouver, BC, March 2002
The Five Circle Project: Vancouver is an installation based on twenty sites in Vancouver, and was completed during an artist residency at CBC Studios Vancouver from March 12 to 21 for the ZeD Beta v.1 pilot. ZeD is an interlacing of television and the internet and invites viewer participation via the net.

These symbols are also used in sacred geometry, which is the embodiment of harmonic waves of energy, melody and universal proportion, and speak of our connections to the larger whole. It is believed that sacred geometry can be understood by people on an intuitive level, and according to geometer Robert Lawlor, enable(s) the mind to become a channel through which the 'earth' (the level of manifested form) could receive the abstract, cosmic life of the heavens.
Five Circle Project begins with a map of Vancouver, and overlays it with
five concentric circles, radiating outwards from the CBC studios in downtown
Vancouver. The concentric circles are reminiscent of raindrops falling
onto water; radiating outwards, and this image reflects the large amounts
of rainfall that generally fall on the west coast -- it also happens to
be similar to the CBC logo which is made of airwaves radiating outwards
into space. Theoretically, this piece could continue into infinity, with
sites chosen along it at different points -- inviting viewers to journey,
and to question their place, not only in the land, but also in the Universe.
