Mike MacDonald

Mike MacDonald (Mi’kmaq, 1941-2006) was a self-taught new media artist and gardener who lived in Nova Scotia. He linked his love for nature, Indigenous knowledge and storytelling with technology in his video and photography installations. He once said that “each of [his] shots is like a commercial for nature.” One of MacDonald’s most renowned living projects began in the early 1990s when he would embark on yearly road trips across Canada, planting butterfly gardens along the way. These gardens are tactile living examples of his devotion to and admiration of the environment.
