Cardiff/Miller are primarily known for their sound and space installations, such as their city walks on audiotape, whose sounds and noises create disorienting layered effects for the city flâneur. The Paradise Institute was similar. As a total installation supported by sound and music, it created the illusion of a turn-of-the-century cinema, and the artists received a prize for it at the 2001 Venice Biennale.
For our Edition Hatje Cantz, Janet Cardiff and George Bures Miller have grouped twelve photographs taken in Canada into a suggestive traveling kaleidoscope—unfortunately, without an audio background. The group is titled Crosscountry—Hornby Island to Kelowna: Hornby Island is an island in the Pacific, along the latitude of Vancouver Island; Kelowna is on Okangan Lake, in the middle of a popular vacation area in British Columbia.
