UNINTERRUPTED – now in virtual reality – brings the beauty and struggle of a salmon migration to the heart of the city. The original 2017 edition of UNINTERRUPTED projected the salmon’s homeward journey on a city bridge. Several years in the making, the intent was to inspire reflection about the impact of our urban footprint.
With VR, the river and the bridge can now migrate to venues throughout BC and beyond. In the summer of 2021, UninterruptedVR was presented in outdoor locations throughout Metro Vancouver, and in the fall of 2022 toured to communities in the BC interior. Now plans are underway to see UninterruptedVR presented in Taiwan in the summer of 2023, as part of a special year of Canadian arts & culture.
Salmon are at the heart of the Pacific ecosystem in so many ways. They are an essential building block – salmon support animals such as whales and bears – and forests; they are deeply embedded in the lives and culture of First Peoples; and infused in the food, culture, art, and industries of cities throughout the Pacific Northwest.
Salmon are also closer than we think – often just a whisper away, gliding through local urban streams. That means they’re also vulnerable to the impact of cities in ways we often don’t realize.
If you’d like to find more about UninterruptedVR presentations for your city or community – great! – you can reach us through firstname.lastname@example.org. Now we invite you to browse through uninterrupted.ca and discover more about our project – and also just how much salmon influence your life and this ecosystem.
