In this interactive and immersive installation, artists Aleksandra Dulic and Miles Thorogood invite visitors to engage with the wandering of a seed pod within Okanagan creek systems. Expressed through the interplay of image, sound, and object, the journey of the pod is guided by the cycle of seasons. This communal experience of passage through waterways is rooted in these artists’ love for nature and represents the fundamental relationship between humans and the ecosystem.
Journey of a Pod is a state-of-the-art union of objects from the creek, digital media, and encoded environment that connects the audience with an ecological cycle and highlights our reciprocal relationship with the earth.
Organized by the Kelowna Art Gallery. Curated by Laura Jane Ritchie.
The artists gratefully acknowledge the support of Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council, Canadian Foundation for Innovation, The University of British Columbia, En’owkin Centre Penticton, and BC Rocks.
