miniature houses and a ladder to the moon

Steven Nunoda, Ghostown, 2011, and Ladder to the Moon, 2012, die-cut tarpaper/wood, sumi paper, projected video, installation view. 
Part of the My Winnipeg: The Artists' Choice exhibition at Plug In ICA during February/ March 2013 (Photos are taken during the opening).
About the two projects from the curatorial statement [link]: 

"Steven Nunoda’s Ghostown recalls memories endured by both of his parents during the Japanese interment during the Second World War. The installation consists of 80 miniature tarpaper scale models of the cramped shacks Japanese Canadian workers were forced to build for their own incarceration. Looming over the collection of shacks, Nunoda’s Ladder to the Moon provides a beacon of hope and child-like creativeness, as the piece was inspired from a conversation with Nunoda’s own daughter." 

Note: Winnipeg has been the home for Marshall McLuhan among other people.
