Brook McIlroyâ€™s THUNDER BAY IOD PARK responds to the City of Thunder Bayâ€™s recently initiated project of converting its industrial waterfront into public trails, parks and villages. This era of transformation – predicated on embracing the waterfront as an amenity – has also seen the removal of some of its heroic industrial legacy embodied in the massive structures that line the shores of Lake Superior.
Imagine a new and inviting waterfront park through photography, video and light. Nodding to the iron ore dockâ€™s overwhelming and magnificent size, the exhibitâ€™s main photographic montage measures over sixteen feet long and seven feet tall. The artistic interpretation depicts the PARK as a year-round destination, transitioning through the four seasons as viewers move from left to right along the length of the installation. Accompanying the montage is a seventeen-piece photography exhibit, documenting the structure in its current as well as original, historical state. Together the montage and photographs illustrate both what exists now and what could exist.
