Between longing and belonging : on the border of Woodhaven Nature Conservancy Cormaci, Nicole Lynn


This thesis is a reflection of a performance created in the autumn of 2010 that installed the conditions of an international border: uniformed guards, visa forms, signs and maps on the edge of Woodhaven Nature Conservancy, a 22-acre bird sanctuary in the Upper Mission of Kelowna, British Columbia. Woodhaven Customs & Border Patrol (WCBP) was a collaborative art project developed by me and my partner and fellow MFA candidate, Lara Haworth, as an interactive critique of the separation between wilderness and civilization and an interruption of the experience of recreation in nature.
