OUTSIDERS 2012

in collaboration with Judith A. Mason, Micky & Kim Renders

Commissioned by the City of Toronto for Nuit Blanche

Outsiders highlights the way we relate to strangers and invites citizens of Toronto to participate in playful social engagement. 50 ‘Outsiders’ [cast in synthetic, transparent, cellulose acetate] appear in Toronto’s downtown core. Each life-sized, luminous, human-like form carries an invitation: “I am an Outsider, make me welcome. Take a photo, pass me on.”
