Annie Shaw loves Niagara Falls. Having lived in urban centers such as Hong Kong, St. Louis, Los Angeles and New York, she has often found herself a tourist of nature, appalled and attracted to our impulse to make nature more natural. As an artist, she is determined to discover new beauty in cliché, and to shatter the cliché in what we consider beautiful.
This video was captured on the Canadian platform overlooking the American Falls, in the morning mist, devoid of people, while a maintenance truck prepares the area for hundreds of incoming tourists.
Annie is currently presenting a project based on the Mega Millions lottery at Monte Vista in Los Angeles. Visit www.montevistaprojects.com for details.
