The collectives previous art interventions in compelling sites such as a nineteenth century church, a twentieth century cosmetic surgery clinic, and a turn-of-the-millennium banking institution, provided an environment which encouraged dialogue between audience, artworks, site history and conceptual ideas of space. Barbara’s photography and video work have been displayed during Scotia Bank’s Nuit Blanche from 2006-2008. Her photo-video piece Soul Trip 999 (Nuit Blanche 2008) was highlighted on the New York based online magazine Sensitive Skin. Her photographs have been published in the former EYE magazine, the Toronto Star, Dogs in Canada, Martiart, Fireweed and others. Personal site
