An immersive sensory narrative spatially woven of architecture, performance and installation.
Giant cocoons infest the back yard of Toronto’s consumer mecca. Gently swaying, these shells illuminate our transparency while humming the melodies of our desires.

Cocoon Garden

Toronto Scotiabank Nuit Blanche independent project

4-5 October 2008

Located in a dark urban parkette tucked behind the busy, media-saturated shopping strip of Queen Street West, the immersive sound installation consisted of numerous beautiful but empty glowing shells. Their only content was an elusive sound element - fragmented TV commercials & recognizable pop culture jingles, their neverending repetition suddenly eerie . . .

Location: Saint Patrick‘s Market Square, Toronto

Created with Ultra Lime Arts Collective (Jonathan Hlibka, Heather Shute, Chris Mutton)

Materials: chicken wire, plastic foil, mp3 players with mini speakers
