  • Seed (2009)

    This collaborative work is an exploration into the disposable nature of modern culture. Installed in the abandoned Bata shoe factory in Batawa, Ontario, Seed spanned four floors of the over 100,000 sq/ft factory. At the core of the piece is a daily cycle, beginning with Day and progressing through Twilight, Night, and Dawn. Musical compositions work in tandem with traditional sculpture as well as floral light sculptures which guide the audience through temporal transitions while also encouraging exploration within the space. These sculptures pay homage to past technologies and processes while acknowledging their societal deterioration and their subsequent rebirth in modern times. This cyclical nature of existence is integral to the piece.
