Shiftchange (2008)

Shiftchange explores the themes of transformation and identity through the idea that the only thing constant is change. While every individual experiences change in a way that is unique and personal, the presence of change in our lives is a common thread through all times, cultures and people.

All of the changes represented deal with external appearance and the need to convey a certain image to the rest of the world.

The inspiration for choosing a wide range of personal physical changes was to challenge the viewer to relate to at least one of the changes and then hopefully begin to understand the other changes in a similar way.

Shiftchange was commissioned by the Art Gallery of Ontario and was completed in conjunction with the AGO Youth Council.
