"locate" abstractly speaks to the landscape of the north shore as well as the idea of how a house informs our sense of home. Houses and neighbourhoods are inherently one of the ways we define community. Reflecting on the archetypal house form, the sculpture’s varying heights mimic the mountains, while its linear elements create a dynamic visual puzzle with an implied reference as to how urban environments are drawn and defined.


Sculpture completed by Catherine Lavelle, in loving memory of Douglas Senft.
