Thurlow is interpreting the canoe with unconventional construction methods, exploiting its poetic properties, and allowing the viewer to experience modern "wilderness" formtiers. These conoe-forms have a dream-like semi-familiarity, giving the viewer a false sense of ease, while inviting them to enter diverse wilderness environments, which are sometimes urban or hostile. Artist acknowledgements by Sally Thurlow.
