Project Description:
A video projection and performance designed for Ontario Place’s Lookout Point, Shoreline traces the interstitial zones of Ontario Place’s landscape. Created by Toronto-based, multi-disciplinary artist Simone Jones, the project occupies spaces between land, water, and sky.

Biography:
Simone Jones is a multidisciplinary artist who works with film, video, sculpture and electronics. Many of her works question the nature of perception: she is interested in how we see and how we translate what we see through various techniques of representation. Jones graduated from the Ontario College of Art (OCA) with a concentration in Experimental Art and received her MFA in Sculpture Installation from York University in Toronto. Jones is an Associate Professor of Art at OCAD University, Toronto, where she teaches in the Integrated Media Program. Jones has exhibited her work at national and international venues. Recent exhibitions include "Warden and McNicoll" at the Doris McCarthy Gallery in Scarborough, the "Alex Colville Retrospective" at the National Gallery of Canada and "L’Avenir (Looking Forward)" at the Musée d’art contemporain in Montréal. Jones is represented by Ronald Feldman Fine Arts in New York.
