Back + Forth by Marta Chudolinska

The Porcupine's Quill, 2009

Location exerts one very important influence on our lives.

The specific landscape, structure, weather and people of a cityscape combine to create a unique culture of place; a "place" that can define us as succinctly as we might like to think we control our own definitions of self. Aviation allows many of us to live, almost simultaneously, in distant places and to indulge in the complexities of multiple lives. Back + Forth examines the attendant possibility of entrapment, between two such distant places and two, very different, times.

Back + Forth examines what it means to belong, to assimilate, to be distant and to challenge the constraints of time and space in the juggling act that we all call life.
