Sounding Lines is a project collaboration between Nicholas Croft and Michaela MacLeod. Nicholas Croft is an architect and artist from Seattle WA. Michaela is founder and principal of Polymétis, a Landscape Architecture and Land Art Practice studio and Adjunct Professor at the University of Waterloo.
Sounding Lines refers to the early technique of measuring bathymetry (the underwater depth of a water body) by lowering a weighted cable over a ship’s side. The maximum depths of Lake Ontario, the Lake of Shining Waters” is revealed. This piece aims to engage visitors in a territory that is familiar from an unusual perspective.
