Floating Sculpture displayed in the Dawson City Dredge Ponds
Emily Chudnovsky’s Leftover is a large-scale floating soft-sculpture constructed out of a variety of natural fibres (recycled paper pulp, cotton grass, wood-shavings, and sawdust). The sculpture is floating in the dredge pond beside Trans North, and can be visited from the footpath along the highway directly across from the soccer field, or viewed from above from the lookout point at Crocus Bluffs.
