The Bulrush Project was exhibited from August 1 – 9, 2012 during the annual North Bay Heritage Festival. Installations of Andrew Van Schie. It was co presented by the WKP Kennedy Gallery and the White Water Gallery of North Bay.
The installation consisted of 1000 bamboo poles painted vermillion, 500 natural bamboo poles, 1000 solar lights, and flagging tape. The bamboo poles were installed close to the shore west of the North Bay Government Dock. They were installed to mimic naturally growing bulrushes. All the painted bamboo poles had a solar light attached to it that was either orange or lime green. Attached to all the bamboo poles was a piece of lime green flagging tape.
During the day time the flagging tape fluttered in the breeze and in the evening the solar lights turned on to illuminate the false bulrushes.
