Abstract: Through inquiry, experience, and discovery, this practicum reveals the landscape of Old Wives Lake, Saskatchewan and the prairie pothole region that surrounds it. It is my intention for this work to become a device for the revealing of unseen forces, for the creation of a different attention, an altering of perception, and an openness to a unique landscape of ever changing and shifting phenomena. It is accepted that complex systems, cannot be fully understood without time, patience, and commitment; however, through learning, understanding and revealing, the potential to not simply ‘see’ a landscape, but ‘read’ a landscape is harvested to enlighten and share in its discovery. The result is an exhibition of the unexpected Saskatchewan landscape.
