100 Miles Around Us

← Back to the Portfolio


100 Miles Around Us was created during a residency in the spring of 2015 at a high school in the Sherbrooke region in rural Quebec.  Maya Ersan and Jaimie Robson shared their creative process and techniques with Secondary V students. The result was an installation consisting of delicate 3D paper cut-outs created by Mere Phantoms and the students, evoking rural, urban and fantastical environments. Visitors were invited to bring the work to life by casting shadows on the walls with special lights made by Mere Phantoms. A soundscape for this exhibition, which took the rural landscape as its inspiration,  was assembled by Christian Carrière.
