Caroline Mousseau


I am from Winnipeg, fresh into Vancouver as of 2008. There, a Chinatown exists but not as such a corporeal and integral part of the city, past present and future. I walked in; overwhelmed yet fascinated, lost yet excited as I was absorbed in its thriving intricacy.


Model 1:
Materials are chosen for clairvoyance, interactivity and their ability to influence a viewer?s reaction within the space.


Model 2:
Lighting becomes a metaphor of individual interpretations as it shifts and modifies itself upon contact with the exhibition?s illusionary elements.



Pallete:
Materials are assembled to capture the aesthetics of the exhibition, while demonstrating its weave and grid construction.


Image 1:
Fa├žades and public patterns are sources of observation, subjectivity, facts and myth. Personal and social narratives are interlaced, creating the artist?s perception of Chinatown upon his/her first visit.


Image 2:
The goal is to frame and organize as much information as possible regarding Chinatown's physical and social complexity to demonstrate that public identity is constructed, disguised and variable.
