Noam Gonick & Luis Jacob – The Wildflowers Of Manitoba

Noam Gonick and Juis Jacob - Wildflowers of Manitoba

The University of British Columbia has put together a show commemorating the 40th anniversary of 1968. The works selected are all reminiscent of that turbulent decade and fall under the theme of the show, Idyll.
The installation above is titled, “The Wildflowers of Manitoba” and was created by Noam Gonick and Luis Jacob. This work was first exhibited at the Montreal Biennale in 2007. The three channel video installation shows four men living the wild life at a survivalist camp on Lake Winnipeg during the summer of 2006. The videos are projected on the inside panels of a minimally furnished geodesic dome. Some form of hippie virtual reality has been achieved; I wouldn’t have thought it possible.
