“Speed Eramosa” is composed of plaster and ink on a plywood base. The intention of the piece is to reveal the patterns and forms of landscape that surround us and our relation to them. Similar to other early Canadian cities, Guelph was located where two rivers met. Both the Speed and Eramosa rivers have shaped the way the city has organized and imposed itself on the landscape.
