As an art student at the University of Regina multimedia artist Joan Scaglione spent months working with raw wool on a wall. Eventually, frustrated and fed up with her studio space at the university, she brought the wool home into her basement. She shut the lights off and began to wrap herself in the wool.

“I felt like I was crawling out of one of the primal interior space of life—this cocoon shaped habitat,” says Scaglione. “That really triggered in me an awareness of interior versus exterior space— both architecturally and metaphysically.”

Scaglione’s newest and evolving work, Regeneration, continues this exploration. A combination of video, natural material and constructed objects, Regeneration looks at the dialogue between nature and consciousness. Scaglione believes in order to reverse ecological destruction we must first regenerate our imaginations.
