Clearly, I will need to add Canoe Reach Hot Springs to my map at some point–and I’ll definitely have to make a visit to the town of Valemount, BC. Here is an interesting article by Carol Linnitt for the Huffington Post:
This Forestry Town Will Be Canada's First Geothermal Village
Here is an article I recently wrote about Ray’s Well for the Canadian Association for Sound Ecology (CASE) blog.
Here’s an interesting history of a natural mineral spring in Saskatchewan: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g4EnN-MQCF0
My first artwork based on my hot springs creative research is in SONAR. SONAR is a group show featuring sound artists in Edmonton and is part of the Art Gallery of Alberta at Enterprise Square Galleries exhibition series. The show is open until December 20th…Go see/hear it!.
As mentioned in my about section, this is a long term creative research project that is primarily self-funded. As such, it will take time to visit various hot springs sites in Canada and around the world, and then to find creative ways to post new information about these sites. This is not intended to be a tourism blog; rather, it is simply a documentation of the current status and use of these sites.
Given that there are so many hot springs sites to visit, I do encourage others to submit documentation and information on hot springs they have recently visited. These may be anonymous or fully-credited submissions, and I’m happy to include links to personal or professional blogs and/or websites.
Please note that unless otherwise indicated, all photos, videos, audio recordings, documentation, and writing are originals created by me, Raylene Campbell.
