Infrastructure
The aging infrastructure within Halifax, and leading into Halifax, seems to stand in as a comparison to its lack of progressive attitudes. An older city which could theoretically have well designed commuting and intergraded transit, due to the repeated patterns of use. The same pathways and commuting lines are being used day in and day out. However, this seems to mirror a more conservative attitude, despite the turn out for the pass election. The city seems less interested in moving away from old ways of thinking and embracing change.

Nova Scotian Houses
A look into the slow decline of Nova Scotian economics, reflected metaphorically through the depiction of everyday homes. The homes are shown in states of disrepair and rejuvenation, resembling the the struggles and hardships surrounding Nova Scotia’s decline in its once blooming industries. The work brings into question the place for new graduates, a question worth exploring with Halifax’s abundance of post-secondary installations, and native Halgonians who are looking to remain in Nova Scotia. The work brings up questions, rather than answering them, leaving the conclusion for the viewer to decide.
