lilithlithlithlithlithlith: Buntzen Lake Reservoir Site Visit

Feb 4, 2018



Buntzen Lake Reservoir


10:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.


While in residence at Western Front, Elisa Ferrari organized a site visit to Buntzen Lake Reservoir as part of  lilithlithlithlithlith—her multimodal sound-based research and performance project that considered the complex interrelation of land use history, power infrastructures, and daily life through a series of actions, events, and collaborations.

The public was invited to join Ferrari on a twelve kilometre walk along the shore of the lake to collectively document the historic hydroelectric infrastructure of the reservoir and its surrounding ecologies.
