Carbon Copy is a large scale installation created from the surface of the Charles Morris Building- one of the oldest buildings in Halifax. At the time of this exhibition the Morris building was in a precarious state, saved just days before it was scheduled to be demolished, the building was moved onto an adjacent lot. Awaiting a permanent location the building was on stilts, boarded up and locked. This its fate still undetermined a carbon copy of the building was created during ink and fabric. The final prints were installed on scaffolding creating a temporary plate/print diptych
