Fragile installation - Massive Recycled Materials Garden in Mall

Fragile installation - Massive Recycled Materials Garden in Mall | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it

Using everyday materials, like water bottles, bubble wrap and cardboard, found in recycling containers at a major shopping mall in downtown Montreal, artists Roadsworth (i.e. Peter Gibson) and Brian Armstrong, in collaboration with PROJEKROOM collective, created a massive urban garden that stood five stories high. Displayed at the Montréal Eaton Centre, the very site from which the materials were found, water bottles became streams, cardboard turned into trees and plastic film formed insect wings. (Did anyone else notice the flying soda frog?).

 

The installation, called Fragile, hoped to raise awareness of the value of everyday materials and call attention to the fragility of our ecosystem. Make sure you watch the video, below, to see how this impressive installation came together.
