Commissioned by Pacific Arbour, as the developer of Cedar Springs Retirement Residence, 'The Land is a Person' depicts a hat in traditional Pacific Northwest Coast Northern style. It acts as a “hat on the land” recognizing the animation of the landscape as a person. It also pays homage to the timelessness of the land and the wisdom of the elderly. The hat is transformative from day to night. In the daytime its form is its dominant feature, while at night the incised image of a killer whale becomes apparent through illumination. The killer whale is symbolic of harmony and healing.
