Ever drive across the Walterdale Bridge and think, “wouldn’t it be great if they did something with the empty power plant?” Well, Edmonton video artist Tim Folkmann is on it. He’s going to bring the red brick west wall of the Rossdale Generating Station to life, video projecting an artistic interpretation of birds and animals in motion, from 8:00pm to 11:00pm on Friday, October 12 and Saturday, October 13, 2018.
The City of Edmonton, in partnership with the Edmonton Heritage Council, the Edmonton Arts Council, and the Rossdale Community League, has launched of a new arts and heritage pilot grant program: Tracing Connections in River Crossing. WILDLIFE is one of three projects that have been chosen to showcase the historically significant River Valley Crossing. The installation uses light and shadow to remind us of the significance of animal life in the area then and now. It can be experienced from the river valley trails, the Walterdale Bridge, downtown and Saskatchewan Drive.
Tim Folkmann is a multi-disciplinary artist. He works primarily in film and video to create installations in unexpected environments.
