Neck Uh the Wood is part of an ongoing project about memories, myth and storytelling. Objects are chosen from landfills, thrift stores and other palaces of memory. Stories are recalled and rewritten into each other. 

Most of the objects for Neck Uh the Wood were provided by Dawsonites directly or via the Quigley landfill.

Some of the stories for this project were provided by Wayne and Christine Allain (Summerside, PE) and Jim McArthur (Halifax, NS) and theirs are the voices you can hear.

Many thanks to Tara and ODD Gallery, KIAC, everyone at Jimmy’s Place, Dan Sokolowski and Amy Ball.
