By focusing on the study of humans in society, Tuberville reminds that historical research brings together human character along with human wills, minds and emotions. Many fields of research, including history, are enveloped in understandings of subjectivity as a cultural artifact that varies with time. Hildegard Westerkamp likens our current environmental, social and economic challenges to an opportunity to reflect on personal (subjective) connections in relation to the present situation, as well as the need for individual actions and responsibility to counteract present day imbalances. Hindsight is indeed twenty-twenty, leading one to wonder how those in the near future will perceive our subjective examinations of the current global situation, as well as the wills, minds and emotions that led to those cultural artifacts.

This map-directed, self-paced “digital soundwalk” stirs up subjective and objective particulate matter, and hopefully also action and responsibility, floating in the spaces and places of two of Vancouver’s rapidly evolving neighbourhoods, the False Creek Flats and Olympic Village. Names changes to this area – from Snauq to False Creek – underscore its interstitial nature, with the ebb and flow of social, cultural, economic, colonial and political forces influencing its spatial configurations. Yet our hold over this land is tenuous at best: as artists Rhonda Weppler and Treveor Mahovsky remind with their public artwork A False Creek, the repercussions of climate change and rising tidal waters could potentially undermine and drown out any short-sighted and thin understanding of humankind’s grip on power and control over this area.

Meandering through highly managed spaces and places, this soundwalk draws scant remnants from this area’s previous lives and histories. Our wills, minds and emotions inform the subjective cultural artifacts that bubble forth as walkers and listeners circulate, energize and engage with notions of home, place and belonging in the interstitial tidal zone among the area’s more current flotsam, jetsam, and detritus.
