A Jock McDonald Remix Project by Pete Smith.

This blog is a running journal that was made in conjunction with my artist residency at the Robert McLaughlin Gallery in Oshawa, Ontario, Canada that took place between December 2014 and February of 2015.

Notes from an airplane

It's kind of awesome flying over Canada at night - a spectacular darkness. The map on the tv monitor tells me I am somewhere over the Rocky Mountains. It is profoundly black out there. I cannot tell between ground and sky. Past the beacon of our wing's white light is a distant settlement - a haze of yellow glow on an imagined horizon. A moment later and there is melanoid nothing again, periodically interrupted by the pinprick of some faint illuminate.
