Canadian Centre for Architecture: Journeys exhibition

Here are some interesting projects about mobility associated with the CCA’s Journeys exhibition.

This is an online (evergreen/legacy) project of stories relating to mobility emerging from the exhibition: the “Infinity Index.”

Craig Leonard 'Mobile Homes', 2006

Here is more information about the Journeys exhibition generally – it focuses on communities and goods that must move. I was particularly intrigued by the international cucumber regulations and the presentation of the Newfoundland resettlement story. If you are interested in the Newfoundland resettlement story, here’s a link to artist Craig Leonard’s website, which I found on the Infinity Index, plus a link to a video he made about how to float a house – there are more videos at the CCA’s exhibition, and MUN has lots of information about this very Canadian story of mobility.

I was also sorry to miss every last one of the CCA’s workshops on Storytellings so far.  It’s not too late to catch next week’s on the L’idée du Nord.
