The Wandering Island is a site-specific project conceived for Elbow Island, a Calgary/Mohkínstsis park located beneath 4th Street Bridge, balancing precariously between city + nature, land + river, public + private, camouflaged + forgotten. The Wandering Island has a mandate to create slow art for the audience of birds, bats, beaver, fish, and the occasional curious wanderer. This project is guided by local artists Lane Shordee, Caitlind r.c. Brown & Wayne Garrett.
This short documentary by Calgary filmmaker Ramin Eshraghi-Yazdi is one of a collection of short films to be released throughout the project and acts as an introduction and invitation to the project.
