Remarks on location:
Temporary intervention, cap d'Ours and a baseball field, Rouyn-Noranda
Arrows painted on a rocky outcrop in the centre of town point us toward the top of the cape, from where we discover a cityscape dominated by mining facilities. Made up of foreign-sounding names, these arrows recall the many immigrants who came to seek their fortune in this gold-rich region and wound up working in the mines. On the ground, at the top of the cape, we find a ring composed of words written with rocks.
