MOSAIC OF STORIES

REFUGE is a project that addresses issues of migration in Canada.  A mosaic of vessels which lean towards one another invite the public to engage in the social issue of migration within our country.  Each vessel has a projected image of a migrant which becomes animated as one approaches.  Ducking inside, a dark acoustically lined interior mutes the senses and enhances the audio found within; that of the individuals story migrating to Canada.

in collaboration with Katie McKay and Veronica Simmonds of Part & Parcel

The form of each vessel is determined by its projected and receiving face.  To enter one must duck inside and a 1 on 1 intimate experience listening to the migrants story occurs.

22 Vessels are placed in a grid around the Montreal metro station.  Spatially evocative the vessels act as a large conversation, while each one represents a personal story.

Projected images of human scaled animated people blur the lines between the ephemeral and the real in this urban context.
