A collaboration of visual artist Agnieszka Matejko, videographer Bob Lysay and poet Jannie Edwards, adrift addresses the growing social problem of homelessness through an interdisciplinary artwork. The metaphor of wind and the weather it creates symbolically links to the powerful but often invisible socioeconomic systems that result in “shadow people” –  the homeless, who are often afflicted with mental health or addictions issues, and who drift through the edges and alleys of the city – marginalized, largely unsupported and virtually invisible.

Featured at InSight 2, Spring 2013, FAB Gallery, University of Alberta, “an international exhibition at the nexus of design, the health humanities and community.“
