A summer parade opening the Calgary Stampede celebrations, July 6, 2001 is presented in triplicate. The visuals provide a focus for reflection on events that only weeks later marked changed levels of social innocence.
Missing Parade Notes was assembled and edited into a short video documenting highlights of the parade. Slow motion and colour treatment were added to age the footage. The result is reminiscent of archived film footage from an earlier time. The video was then assembled in triplicate as a base to carry the poetry text. Recently composed, the text message appears to have been added using analogue typewriter technology. Overall, the intention is to bridge the time disconnect and to verbalize current thoughts toward past events. The audio component is a mixed cacophony of music and cheering rising up to the spectator.
