John Shukin

Although the soil is never fully fertile, we must still plant seeds of hope for women around the world.
Nef pour quatorze reines is a proposal for a memorial commemorating the Polytechnique massacre. It is an attempt to help reflect on the tragedy, but also to provide a seed of hope and a way to move forward. Made using predominantly burnt cedar, the memorial comprises a seating area surrounding an inner sanctum filled with plants, offering an opportunity for meditation and renewal.
