MARINE SLIPS is a proposal for a site specific public art wall in Dartmouth, Nova Scotia. Based on the memories of the former use of the site, MARINE SLIPS interprets historical information into a dynamic tactile graphic wall that changes from day to night. The work memorializes the 3500 warships that were serviced at this very site during the "Battle of the Atlantic" of WWII. The coloured pattern underneath the water-jet cut veil is an interpretation of the "dazzle" camouflage utilized by Flower Class Corvette Ships during the war.
