Raven <lite> is a light installation that pays homage to the story of Raven stealing the light. In the story, Raven is a shape-shifting trickster who uses their supernatural abilities to steal the Sun, Stars, and Moon from a great chief – releasing these belongings into the sky for all to enjoy. This story is important to many Yukon First Nations, and connects us to the land – showing our appreciation for the return of the Sun after long dark winters. Raven <lite> uses anamorphic design to play with the concept of shape-shifting – the image of Raven is seemingly distorted and abstracted, unless viewed from one perspective.

Krystle Silverfox is a member of Selkirk First Nation (Wolf Clan), and interdisciplinary visual artist. She currently lives and works on the traditional territory of the Ta’an Kwäch’än Council and the Kwanlin Dün First Nation (Whitehorse, Yukon). Silverfox holds both a BFA in Visual Art (2015); a BA in Gender, Race, Sexuality and Social Justice from UBC (2013); also an MFA in Interdisciplinary studies from Simon Fraser University (2019). Her artistic practice explores different materials, methodologies, and symbols to create conceptual works. Krystle Silverfox is inspired by Indigenous feminism, trans-nationalism, de-colonialism, activism, and lived experience.
