‘Arborescent’ symbolizes the opportunities for innovation and imagination to build this future together. Utilizing manufacturing off-cut materials to form a colourful forest of renewal and growth emerging from the built environment. We are hoping we can lead you on a journey of self-discovery regarding your own use and reuse of everyday materials that have a real impact on our world. ‘Arborescent’ is a testament to the rejuvenation of Yonge + St. Clair, Toronto, and the Global community to create a new sustainable future for us all. Our future is everyone’s future, let’s create a resilient community together!
Thank you to all the volunteers that assisted in sewing and tying together the felt and fabric strands!
Lighting effects was done using a phone running LIFX software. The seamless looping 20+ minute long background music tracks were produced in Ableton Live, and then randomized using a Raspberry Pi 4 music server.
