BY THE TIME WE GOT TO EXPO (2015)

A collaboration with Philip Hoffman, 9:05 min, 16mm, super 8mm, HD, 2015

A kinetic journey through Expo 67, revisiting Canada’s centennial through the symbols, choreographies, and built environments of the World’s Fair and its construction of (inter)nationalism. Reworking archival footage, By the Time We Got to Expo creates a vibrant collision of textures and forms in order to explore the surfaces, ideologies, and implications of the ‘meeting place’ that was Expo 67.
