CANCELLED – Mike Steinhauer, frontal façade, Bridgehead, 1277 Wellington


The short film documents the frontal façade of Parliament Hill. Instead of presenting images in chronological order, the tonal values of the façade dictate the sequence – challenging a narrative dictated by traditional archival & web cam practices.

Mike Steinhauer is a photographer, conceptual artist, blogger and arts administrator. He is keenly interested in the urban environment—in particular the relationship between past and present use of space and the correlation between cultural or heritage property and the environment in which it is placed.

About the host:

Bridgehead’s fifteen coffeehouses are nestled in most of Ottawa’s downtown neighbourhoods. They are a place to relax, socialize, and of course get excellent coffees, teas and treats. By offering fairly traded and organic coffees, teas and chocolates we aim to promote healthy and sustainable grower communities. Bridgehead roasts its own fairly traded coffee daily in our Preston St. Roastery so the coffee is always freshly-roasted and to the highest quality.
