Topping is a visual artist who works with electronics, film and sound. He has made several short films and site-specific film installations, including “Reading Canada Backwards,” which was screened at the Vancouver Film Festival in 1997. According to the artist, the film “is proportional to the landscape from Vancouver to Halifax, Canada. It’s shot at a rate of 3 frames per mile so one can compare the geography of the county.” In addition to this presentation of the film, on November 30, the actual date of the anniversary, the Owens Art Gallery will host an artist talk by Topping at 4 pm.
