ConNextions, 2021 

"Stronger Together" 

This work is a temporary public art installation apart of The Town of Oakville's ConNextion Projects that includes 7 emerging and professional artists.

"Stronger Together" is an installation that is made up from 668 plastic single-use grocery bags that were collected and donated by the community. These bags were then turned into a textile and woven into the existing structure at Westwood Park in Oakville, ON. This work was in response to the plastic ban affect that was suppose to be put into place by 2021, but due to the pandemic  this date was extended. The process of weaving and collecting from the community brings a message of hope and if we work together we can come up with more sustainable and innovative ways to build a stronger community.

During our residency we learned about the history of the Humber River as well as the indigenous and medicinal plants along the river, we collected and cleaned up the shoreline along The Humber River and Sunnyside Beach (Lake Ontario), and created a large scale mosaic with the plastic particles we collected. Particles of the Humber will be planted with indigenous and invasive plant species when it is permanently installed.
