Seven days a week, 12 hours a day, for nearly a month Kim Morgan and a team of artists and volunteers worked against the weather to capture every inch, inside and out, of a lighthouse in the tiny town of Borden-Carleton, PEI. Morgan calls the result an epitaph that speaks to the decommissioning of regionally iconic structures. Range Light, Borden-Carleton is an incredible 60-foot cast composed of seven layers of latex and mosquito netting that is lit from within to accentuate its intricacies. "It's a map of the history of this place, really. The cast picked up every detail, every scrape," says Morgan who hopes the next stop for the "counter-memorial, anti-monument " is PEI.

To November 21, Mount Saint Vincent University Art Gallery, 166 Bedford Highway
