        http://peterflemming.ca/flemmweb_current/details/canoe_solar.html This is a solar-powered, outdoor variation of Canoe. (http://peterflemming.ca/flemmweb_current/details/canoe.html) Canoe is a long (approx. 20') trough of water, resembling some kind of boat, on which a gunwale tracking mechanism slowly, endlessly paddles back and forth. It was shown in Dawson City, Yukon, from late July to early September 2006. It was graciously hosted by the Klondike Institute of Art and Culture/ODD Gallery, as part of their Natural and Manufactured series. EXHIBITION STATEMENT FOR NATURAL AND MANUFACTURED 2006 Dawson, Yukon RELAXATION OSCILLATOR The work here in Dawson is like an old vehicle in which I've put a new engine. Entitled Canoe, it consists of an approximately 20 foot long trough of water, that resembles some kind of boat. This provides a means for a gunwales tracking mechanism to slowly, endlessly paddle its way back and forth. It was first constructed in 2001 in a studio beside Halifax harbour. It draws visual inspiration from the bridges and water vessels of this port. Conceptually, it grew from an interest in technological obsolescence: how things (like canoes) make shifts from utility to leisure. It has experienced several major rebuilds since 2001. Most of them have been practical, but for Dawson I've opted for an experimental configuration that changes significantly the nature of the work. Previously, Canoe has only ever been shown indoors. Normally in runs on rechargeable batteries, with a continuous, smooth motion. In Dawson, it is shown outdoors, alongside the Yukon river, showing up in an absurd way the paleness of its artificial river. Here, the primary source of power is sunlight. Making use of the long northern day, solar panels receive light, storing energy in an array of super-capacitor cells. At this time, Canoe remains still. A custom circuit monitors the amount of charge, and when a predetermined trigger point is reached, it is dumped into Canoe's electric motor in a burst, allowing it to make a few strokes. Then Canoe rests, while the charging cycle begins again. Motion is intermittent, entirely dependent on the amount and intensity of sunlight. It ranges from near standstill in overcast conditions to perhaps 1 or 2 strokes every minute in full light. The technical term for this type of circuit is a relaxation oscillator. I like this term because, if you remove it from its technical context, it points back to ideas about leisure and utility. I am seeing this whole project as an experiment. Canoe itself is a rigid, rules-based system of repetitive mechanics, preset circuitry and angular construction. I really like the idea of taking this type of system and placing it somewhere where it is effected and affected by factors that are not predictable or necessarily even known: elements, sunlight, the responses of passerby etc. Dawson is the ideal place for this experiment.

              The Pulling Together canoe journeys in British Columbia, Canada are a powerful force in the battle against substance abuse and in the striving for peaceful productive cooperation between government agencies and First Nations peoples. This video documents one day in the planning for the 2011 journey aboard a 63 foot RCMP vessel in Barkley Sound on Vancouver Island. The mission for the day is to seek out and make alternate plans for any potential safety issues for the upcoming voyage.

                    Open boaters Brent and Harrison paddle North Carolina creeks and rivers in the "old school" style: kneeling (ouch!), with a single-bladed paddle, in canoes, C-1s and the occasional raft.
