The Blue Line
The Blue Line is a topographical drawing brought to life.
By revealing the space between two contour lines along the river bank, the project makes visible the paradoxical notations of how we quantify and document our natural landscapes.
A simple low-lying wood platform snakes across a single elevation line, intersecting all pedestrian paths and constructions along the site.
From across the Red River you see a horizontal band of blue along the bank.
From up on the bridge, one sees an irregular graphic blue shape.
From multiple perspectives, the Blue Line is a minimal-yet-bold graphic statement upon Winnipeg’s riverside landscape.
