The national project LandMarks 2017 aims to celebrate monumental landmark projects and predominant national narratives linked to chosen historic sites across Canada’s National Parks. One of our objectives in this course is to consider the idea of ‘marking’ and what it means to make a mark. In studio we will experiment with ideas of (un)marking, the trace erasure as a mark, and the resonance of absence. We will explore the different contexts and scales in which landmarks are manifest (locally/ nationally), what they signify, and for who.
