Gallery 918, 918 Bathurst Street, Toronto, Ontario.

I am exploring bird-building collisions in Toronto, and using collage as a metaphor for the fragmented perception of the city that migratory songbirds may experience. For more information about bird-building collisions, and how you can help, please visit the Fatal Light Awareness Program (FLAP) at www.flap.org

To see some of my thesis artwork, please visit the 'Recent Artwork> MFA Thesis- Fenestration' section of this website.

One goal of my MFA thesis project was to raise awareness and to initiate discussion about bird-building collisions in Toronto and other urban centres. Here is the abstract from my thesis paper:

The city of Toronto is located on a flight path used by millions of migratory birds. It is estimated that, “1 to 10 birds will hit each building, each year, in North America alone. In Toronto, that amounts to between 1 to 10 million migrating birds lost every year.”[1] Although these collisions account for more bird deaths every year than anything else, this knowledge is not widespread or collectively seen as a need for concern. The overall objective of my interdisciplinary thesis project was to expose this issue through collage. The project aims to increase people’s awareness of bird-building collisions and avian perception, and to lead to new questions for future interdisciplinary research.
