String Theory

The lone artist, toiling away on his Herculean task -- not quite.

No, I’m not going to wax philosophical about theoretical physics — although I would like to think that the canoe project might inspire such musings. I’m referring to a photo that appeared in a Record article about the Thomson exhibition.

TheRecord – Remembering Tom Thomson

I was laughing about this photo with journalist Robert Reid, because it paints a very different theory of artistic practice than the one exhibited by this project. It was no problem for me to wrap the fishing line around the end of the canoe, as pictured above. But I would have needed 8-foot arms to complete the task alone. Thank you once again to the helpers.
