I was invited by curator Maiko Tanaka to make a work for Nuit Blanche in Toronto. I opted out of making a spectacular thing, and created a more temporal, gradually unfolding installation. In Butterfield Park at the Ontario College of Art and Design, I made a garden best viewed by moonlight (with the help of landscape architect Emily Hogg). The installation was accompanied by an edition of 250 cards, each including a seed for a night blooming flower, to be planted in spring. These were distributed to visitors to the site throughout the evening.
This Creeping Root was commissioned by Ontario College of Art and Design for Scotiabank Nuit Blanche on October 3rd, 2015. The garden will remain in the space until it’s not wanted anymore, and is marked by a small aluminum plaque.
