Progress: November 2001

Bellevue Mountain (Substitute)
A-3 Mount Bauerman / Mont Bauerman

November 2001

The very beginnings of the Tongue Rug project. Was artist-in-residence at EMMEDIA Gallery & Production Society in Calgary, Alberta. Taught some workshops and did on-line research on placenames databases. Chose Banque de noms et lieux du Québec to plan my trajectory by searching for the topographical elements that shared my family names. Also researched satellite imagery sites like The Earth Viewer to document my placenames. This software was first implemented in December 1994 by John Walker, the founder of Autodesk, Inc. and co-author of AutoCAD. It makes use of satellite data provided by The Living Earth® Inc./Earth Imaging.

Tried to visit two waypoints in Waterton National Park (A-3 Mount Bauerman), but it was too far of a trek to make in snowshoes. Turned back in front of what I believe is Bellevue mountain. Need to go back in the summer.
