Drawing on souvenirs, memorabilia, architectural fragments, and objects as talismans, ‘Flotsam Particles’ is a collection of relics of the utopian spirit that became Ontario Place. Taking the form of the iconic Cinesphere designed by architect Eberhard Zeidler, this series of casts in varying metal alloys represents dream fragments from an earlier, more optimistic future. The objects have assumed a layer of rust through exposure to the conditions at the Lake Ontario site and will continue to oxidize throughout their existence.
The work distills elements developed as part of a site specific landscape installation created for the In/Future Festival at Ontario Place, Toronto, September, 2016.
