Climate Migrant Pavilion @ IDS 2012 until January 29th
Migrating Landscapes Organization has a booth designed and built by Department of Unusual Certainties as a part of IDS 2012′s Offsite Onsite exhibition at the Metro Toronto Convention Centre. Constructed using ABS piping and tarp, it is light, easy to erect, collapse, and move to its next required site. The Climate Migrant Pavilion performs three tasks. It informs IDS visitors about Migrating Landscapes- Canada’s entry into the 2012 Venice Biennale of Architecture. Provides updates from world citizens residing in Vancouver, Calgary and Halifax*. And gives the climate migrant access to a select range of goods they may need for their journey; including, canned goods, wadding boots, an acid rain responsive umbrella**, and a form of dignity.
Migrating Landscapes Ontario Regional Exhibition is opening February 6th at Brookfield Place in Toronto.
*The projections present MLO project renderings, Migrating Landscapes contestant’s migration story videos, and DoUC’s timelines from Vancouver, Calgary, and Halifax.
**The concept and creation of the acid rain responsive umbrella is by Kar Yan Cheung.
Climate Migrant Pavilion was created with the support of the Migrating Landscapes Organization, Design Exchange, Aliya Tejani, Natasha Basacchi and Kar Yan Cheung.
