Immersed in a swarm of suspended origami jellyfish at the Vancouver Aquarium.
Can you tell the difference between the crocheted wool coral (Cooper Hewitt Design Museum) and the coral coral (Vancouver Aquarium)? Okay, perhaps the fish give it away.
Interestingly, this huge sparrow is sculpted from polystyrene (a material usually used for disposable cutlery and foam drink cups). Touché.
Why are these sculptures so compelling, much more so than the usual bronze (although the pasture of bronze cows in downtown Toronto is pretty great). Paper, wool and polystyrene are so unexpected, yet turn out to be perfect, making the juxtapositions between animal and material memorable. You can’t ask for more from a medium than that.
