PayDirt offers a visual representation that furthers Lindsay’s interest in interacting with light, colour and sound by transforming a space with multiple projected images and audio. By placing the projected images in strategic places Lindsay creates windows or portals into the landscape featured. Manipulating the left and right audio channels, Lindsay creates a conversation between the sounds of nature and the interruptions of heavy machinery. Using subtle animation paired with the audio, PayDirt presents a possible outcome for the site of the proposed Ajax mine after it has been exhausted of its precious metals. Lindsay is a recent graduate of the Thompson Rivers University Fine Arts program.
