One Day in December

April 29th, 2022

A site-specific video installation that imagines the experience of a teacher and students who witnessed the great fire at the Quaker Oats factory in 1916 from their classroom at King George Public School. Years later, ghosts of memories appear for an older man who vows peace. Incorporating a song cycle by Susan Newman (music) and Rob Fortin (lyrics), media artist/theorist LA Alfonso creates a unique video projection-mapping presentation that transforms the classroom windows in Room 12 into portals of an imagined past to give hope to the present day. Featuring musical performances by singers Marsala Lukianchuk, Rob Fortin and a cast of children.
