Collective endeavors

Michelle Allard creating paper rolls for Materialscape

Materialscape is my 6th installation in the “Office Paper” series and promises to be the most ambitious. Each installation has been predominantly conceived of and produced in-situ with previous exhibitions in Japan, France and Canada ( Mercer Union and the Richmond Art Gallery).  Over 20 volunteers from the community and the University of Waterloo have come together for 2 weeks to help prepare the materials which involves rolling and gluing sheet after sheet of printer paper. All this whilst getting to know each other and listening to informative and entertaining podcasts of “This American Life“. This work could not be produced without such amazing and committed help, thus I see this as a truly collective endeavor.
