About : For the Voz/Voice exhibition in Whitehorse (2009) I invited viewers to participate in my installation Canto; 10 etched copper cylinders which turn like prayer wheels. Each wheel related to an endangered species, space or culture. Viewers were asked to add their “wishes or prayers” and this eBook is a compilation of the notes they left in each wheel. Images printed from the etched copper plates before they were rolled into the cylindrical wheel appear alongside the notes. For more information on the LLAMA Project and Joyce Majiski see
