"Completion of the three-year 49th Parallel Project focusing on the 1,270-mile section of the U.S./Canadian border formed by that parallel. While traveling by foot and bicycle along its course, I interviewed individuals affected by the consequences of line drawn on a map. The project included artist residencies for the production of artwork and exhibitions of related installation works in both countries as well as the broadcast of a documentary video on public television stations. The project was part of the Cultural Olympiad for the 1996 Centennial Games."
