Shannon Leah Collis is an interdisciplinary artist who investigates relationships among multiple sensory modalities and between visual and acoustic phenomena in perception. She creates audiovisual installations and interactive environments that highlight the situated, embodied experience of hearing and seeing. Her exhibition in the Dalton Gallery, Strata, is a multi-sensory installation which immerses visitors in an environment of deep sonic resonance and dynamic moving images that travel above and through Alberta’s Boreal Forest, the Athabasca River, and Fort McMurray to underscore the scale of the Fort Hills Suncor Oil Sands and Syncrude Oil Plant, the third-largest known crude bitumen reservoir on the planet. Presented as multi-screen sculptural projection with surround sound, Strata explores complex intersections of the social, the economic, and the environmental through contrasts between natural landscape and human industry, while highlighting nature’s persistence in the face of industrial exploitation.
