Parts per trillion by Steve Gurysh

June 1st, 2020

Watch the newly released film by artist Steve Gurysh. Parts per trillion takes us on an extraordinary and beautiful journey, delving into the creative process from inception through to fruition.

Steve had the unique opportunity to work alongside employees and within the processes of the Utilities & Environmental Protection Department of the City of Calgary. Parts per trillion is the culmination of research, engagement with employees and citizens, development, and distillation over a period of three years. Archiving the remnant traces of human activity, Parts per trillion provides insight into the effects we have on nature and our watershed.

This work was developed while Steve participated in Watershed+ Dynamic Environment Lab, a City of Calgary Public Art Program.
