Studio Process: Coalesce, Scotiabank Nuit Blanche

Coalesce is a site-specific installation that I made for Scotiabank Nuit Blanche which happened this past October 4th in Toronto. Looking at lace as a metaphor for interconnectivity, this large-scale installation transformed recycled materials sourced from H&M’s Garment Collecting initiative and turned them into a monumental cascade of lace - in the storefront window of H&M at Queen and Spadina. 

Through this installation, I wanted to re-imagine the value potential of common discard materials while thinking about sustainable practices and the global exchange that is embedded within the garments we wear.

Here are the process shots in my studio from initial planning, sorting through the garments and constructing each piece of the three-story installation by hand!
