Adam Harris & Parimal Gosai

Above is the Living Wall installation by Adam Harris and Parimal Gosai for Come Up To My Room 2009 at the Gladstone Hotel.

The plastic bag – an everyday object that has become as undesirable as it is ubiquitous. This free standing living wall gives new life to these troublesome totes and explores how materials can be re-purposed in order to transmute their destructive effects.  The Wall was created using reclaimed TV antenna towers (remember, the one’s so tempting to climb?) and planters which are composed of 60-70 laminated plastic shopping bags.  More than 3500 plastic bags were used to create all the planters!  Each planter is placed and shaped in such a way that water introduced at the top will drip down through planters below – so a self watering system could be easily introduced.  For more information visit: www.dapstudio.ca

VIDEO – It Was Great for Me, How Was it for You?

This is a little video I shot and threw together showing the setup and final products of this year’s show!  Show participants, audience and readers, please feel free to comment:  How was this year’s show for you?

For me the show was magical! I have to say it was one of the most rewarding experiences of my life! Getting to work with so many creative people and then really getting to know them over the long hours of the show was really fun.  I actually had a hard time saying goodbye to everyone. The biggest measure of the show’s success is the experiences of the participants!  I will miss you all!
