In a performance done in late January 2020, I shovelled out a path paralleling the tracks of a moose. The path took 5.5 hours of work over the course of two days. I spent 2.5 hours shovelling at -45 degrees Celsius on the first day, and 3 hours shovelling at -35 degrees Celsius on the next day. For this project the process was especially important because it’s where the meaning is found. The idea of an animal being able to walk easily through snow that is three feet deep is impressive. I wanted to translate my awe of this achievement by trying to create something impressive myself.
