              This is one of many geotagged videos that appear on pixelgrain, a project initiated by artists Michael Alstad + Leah Lazariuk. pixelgrain is an online repository of documents and ideas linked to the fading symbol of the Canadian prairie grain elevator. By systematically documenting and mapping these disappearing structures the artists portray a parallel rural community in the midst of transition. pixelgrain also functions as a web portal that utilises Geographic Information Systems and online social networks to create a participatory collaborative document that will evolve and grow over time. http://www.year01.com/pixelgrain http://www.flickr.com/groups/grainelevators pixelgrain was supported by Year Zero One, Saskatchewan Film Pool, Soil Digital Media Suite and The Canada Council for the Arts.

                The butcher, the baker, the candlestick maker. Where have they all gone? There were many necessary and unique trades to help families survive on the frontier. These special skills all had an important purpose in it’s day because there was a need for important products and services in the new world.
