Esther Shalev-Gerz will present her proposal for The Shadow, a new public art project to be installed on the UBC campus as part of the Outdoor Art Collection. A 100-metre long depiction of the shadow of an old-growth Douglas fir tree will be embedded within the paving pattern of the University Plaza. Shalev-Gerz will discuss this work in relation to the many other projects she has created in the public spaces of cities world-wide.
