Viewfinder Project
Byron's Farm, Kelowna, BC

The Viewfinder Project: Westside is located at Byron's Farm on the west side of Gallagher's Canyon, Kelowna, British Columbia, and looks across approximately one to one and half miles of canyon to the east side where the East Site and Spiral images are located.
In an attempt to bridge the space between two sites, the Viewfinder is constructed from materials found on both sides of the canyon.
The view from the east side site on Gallagher's Canyon, looking west to the site at Byron's Farm to the west and the site of the Viewfinder (arrow in photo points to west site). The stone spiral, at the east site, was an intuitive response to the site and was made from stones from both sides of the canyon.
