Invited to respond to the Bathurst Jewish Community Centre site in Toronto, I reflected on emotional potency that community centres hold for their users. I remembered my own childhood summer spent exploring and lounging poolside at the Civil Servants Recreation Association in Ottawa. The RA pool of my childhood, represented my first solo experience armslength yet sanctioned by family. I decided to work with pools, water and the acts of filling and pouring while also asking my niece Alannah Bowes to help. This work juxtaposes colour photographs documenting the annual filling of the swimming pool with an image of a girl drinking a glass of water.
