Legacy

When Scott Sawtell curator of "60 Painters" invited the artists to visit Humber College site, the bright painted yellow wall of one of the classroom called my attention. Right away I new that I wished to have this room and would propose a site-specific artwork that would integrate the colour of the wall with my artwork.

As we walked from one room to another and meander in a labyrinth of hallways, I was sensitive to how I oriented myself and at times how I felt disoriented by this unfamiliar building.

How do we experience a space when entering it for the first time?

This site-specific installation is a response to that experience and the title Legacy refers to the team of builders and designers that developed Humber’s Arts and Media Studios.
