I made a new digital projection piece for The Tangle, an art event organized by a few friends in Corner Brook, Newfoundland. For Three Times Round, I revisited a series of panoramic photos I made in 2003 of an abandoned barn in the town I grew up in. The field where the barn stood is now a new subdivision. The text is about departing and returning; I have moved away from Newfoundland and back again three times.

Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, everything is the same.
Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, you wonder if you ever left.
Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, the place feels different.
Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, you see things differently.
Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, you are not the same.
Sometimes you leave a place and when you return, you can’t find it.
