SCAI – Students Collective Art Initiative, Take A Seat, Sparks, 112 Sparks & Taco Lot – Hintonburg, 999 Wellington West

“Take a Seat” asks the viewer to be as a part of an artwork. The viewer takes a seat on a park bench with a backdrop of galaxies behind in the Market. The sitters become actors in the artwork as they are projected on a nearby wall and other spaces. It is also projected on other surfaces in various sizes in the Nuit Blanche zones. Another park bench is also in Hintonburg and will be projected in other areas as well.

As the night progresses, the video clips will circulate around the projector locations in both zones. Themes of accessibility, interconnectedness, compassion and agency are realized as the image of the viewer/sitter/artist is thrown around the spaces as a supernova.
