Originally titled "The C", this residency was to find a haunting within the sprawling city of Calgary, Alberta, a sea of modernity within western Canada and the traditional territories of the Blackfoot Confederacy (Siksika, Kainai, Piikani), the Tsuut’ina, the Îyâxe Nakoda Nations, the Métis Nation (Region 3). This was to be a new body of work entirely separate from current material, something livelier than the current lonesomeness of the Atlantic. Not to say I was seeking a relationship to the east coast as the city is far too big to pin point anything that particular; rather, what blossomed, perhaps in vein, was a similarity to previous projects wherein these towering pillars of residence, commerce and prospect were found to be upheld by the local establishments hiding between their height... and a startling amount of coffee. Using the very same products used to fashion these buildings both in construction and décor, Fuel is an inspection upon a built city and those who participate in its construction.
