Bill Reid's Canoe
From a single cedar log, Reid carved a 50-foot war canoe, the Loo Taas or Wave Eater. It was first of its kind in the northwest coast in about a century, sparking a renaissance of the canoe culture of indigenous people that continues to this day.
Absolute Spaced scanned and documented a fibreglass replica, which Reid fashioned and named the Black Eagle. The canoe will be permanently displayed at the atrium of University of British Columbia Faculty of Forestry Building.

Absolute Space entered into a partnership agreement with the Vancouver Maritime Museum for the digital preservation of the RCMP St Roch National Historical Site. Under the agreement, the collected 3D laser data along with historical documentation will be digitally disseminated and archived at CyArk’s Iron Mountain data storage facility.
A non-profit organization, CyArk was founded in 2003 to ensure world heritage sites are available to future generations, while making them uniquely accessible today. Using new technologies, its mission is to create a free 3D online library of the world’s cultural heritage sites before they are lost to natural disasters, destroyed by human aggression or ravaged by the passage of time.
