Duvall and Schaefer are commuters—the former between Toronto and Saskatoon, the latter, Toronto and Manchester. Each city welcomes, nurtures, and inspires them. Yet, they also feel sadness about the places they leave behind. With this project, Duvall conspires to bring the bucolic setting of her farmhouse in rural Saskatchewan to the streetscape of Toronto’s Little Italy. Schaefer starts with the name of a place found in both locations for her reveries.
