Convergence - Scotiabank Nuit Blanche 2013

Plastic and Steel

The night of the fifth-sixth of October 2013 was warmer and dryer than expected making the all-night vigil at Spadina Museum more fun. Convergence was the theme adopted by the Art Science Collective of Canada. My part in the convergence story was an alimentary illustration of the 'You are what you eat' meme. The installation was a metaphor and illustration of the chemical and bio-chemical processes required to sustain our lives and reproduction. Steel, wood, plastic, silvered plastic, oil stick and wire were used in the project. Following are photos of some of the original sketches and photos of the installation.

Cabinet of Curiosities

These images are of the Cabinet installation at Spadina Gardens, 27-28 October 2012. The paintings were initially to be displayed as a Möbius strip - it did not work. The cabinet of curiosities was a fast way to redesign the installation - worked nicely.
