Cloud Coordinate

Elisa Yon and Felicia Batzloff (Felicia E. Gail)

2012

Vancouver, BC

A temporary photography based panorama of clouds installed on a glass bus shelter. The artists collected images of clouds in Marpole while they considered place and location as they walked, always moving along the electric bus lines on Granville Street. Cloud Coordinate exists as an experiential respite for contemplations while waiting inside the bus shelter at +49.207357, -123.140439.

On July 14, 2012 the artists presented postcards to the public asking the question, “If you wanted to go anywhere in the whole wide world, where would you go?” The returned postcards and their responses were used to create an artist book for display at the Marpole branch of the Vancouver Public Library.
