dc.description.abstract The purpose of this practicum is to explore the Cheakamus River from its beginning at Outlier Peak to its arrival at Howe Sound. I explored it in terms of its history, both geological and cultural; its uses both past and present; and in terms of ‘place’. I determined there had not been development in the area, due to geological instability and its unique location. I explored the place, its unique characteristics and its rarity. My exploration was through photography, writing and drawing. I explored the culture of the Cheakamus by looking at its role in the mythology of the First Nations People of the area. By looking at the notions of retreat, renewal, meditation and contemplation, I explored the stimmung, genus loci and zen of this river system. Finally, I made connections between the river and the land, highlighting the uniqueness of place. en
