The public space installation proposes to combine the intimacy of the Gladstone hotel setting juxtaposed with the large-scale broad reach of Toronto as a city. The project will seek to envelope the viewer with a three dimensional swath of the city, testing notions of scale, density, pattern making and form.
As the swath cuts across different neighbourhoods and urban conditions, the installation will wrap the surfaces of the interior corridor. Spaces of mass and void, light and shadow will be revealed to the viewer out of context. The project aims to bring the urban fabric to a macro scale by creating a pattern - a tangible object - that works to translate the fabric of the city in which we live. The viewer is invited to experience the community that he/she may visit daily from a different perspective.
