Mediating Fabrics: Poetic Canvas
Built by: Andrew Simonson
Orange Crush was inspired by the conference theme of Fabricating Truth and the ever-popular orange construction tarps of Winnipeg. Every fall partially constructed buildings all around the city are skinned over with the brightly coloured tarps obscuring both the formal qualities of building and the act of making the building itself. Over the course of winter the tarps act as masks that simultaneously conceal the truth of the building beneath, while also offering a tangerine surface that seduces one’s mind into imagining the building beyond. As spring arrives the tarps are sadly taken down and left to sit quietly until the next fall. The newly unsheltered building is then exposed, at long last left to be (un)acknowledged.
