The title references an ecological frontier. This battle line is descibed by a typology of standing trees burnt during one of the Boreal Forests annual summer wildfires. Distant landmarks feature in the background providing an entry point to the events surrounding Canada’s largest mass evacuation of people exactly where the nations rise to the world’s 3rd largest exporter of oil began.

A considered design holds the pictures within the trunk of a burnt jack pine from the suburb of Beacon Hill. It is a large scale book, a tactile experience of materials that include; vegetable ink, uncoated papers, cotton, discarded coffee cups, embossing and meticulous processes from 120 negative film to the printing press.

Wildfire, a natural phenomenon, is rising in frequency, severity and area burned in many parts of the world. For the boreal forest, the world’s largest land biome, thorough studies explain this increase is a result of human influence on the earth's climate. Where will we go, as a species, when we are forced from lands we have had since our beginnings?
