Title: Project Pipeline and the Art of Activism
Date: 01.10.2013 7:00 pm - 10:00 pm
Location: Vancouver Island School of Art
Description: Catherine Wallace is a Victoria artist and activist who created, a unique art project which serves as a creative outlet for the artist's concern about pipelines that lead to tar sands. Catherine started blogging on February 17, 2012 and has consistently added daily posts for over 300 days. These blog entries merge research with compelling visual components to create a social art practice that exists both digitally and in the tangible world. Investigating the massive issue of Tar Sand expansion in small, digestible segments was the only way she could begin to learn about it. As the weeks progress, project-pipeline is becoming a visual narrative, a history of the tar-sands-pipeline-supertanker situation and a living history of resistance. Catherine has creatively documented what amounts to thousands of kilometers, billions of dollars, trillions of litres and countless acts of resistance. What started as a third year independent study class has turned into a multi-media art practice. Catherine is also the 2012 recipient of the Nanaimo Film Festival's Community Film Award.

“I construct my art using components, units and systems. To better understand the obstacles I encounter I establish parameters and work inquisitively inside those boundaries. I am a videographer, information gatherer, public speaker, activist and environmentalist. I create to inform.”
