Life in Colour – Terrestrial

November 21, 2017

Drawings by Angela Gooliaff, colouring by you
September 16, 2017 – February 18, 2018

Colour your way through nature on a giant mural that showcases ecosystems from BC and around the world. This vinyl panel is a 35-foot long (9 feet high) colouring book graphic that is coloured with markers by the general public.

Presented by Hemlock Printers, I explore keystone species in both the terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems, employing feminine symbology of peace and wisdom, and story through a giant interactive colouring book mural. I have connected my investigation of keystone species with the adult colouring book movement as an interruption to the current story of the natural world.

By presenting a web of life for visitors to interact with, it will be visually apparent just how biodiverse our ecosystems are and how drastic an impact the removal of one species from the environment could be. Giving the audience control to own their story through colour, perhaps will get them thinking about their own story and placement within the natural world.
