a public engagement project, North Sugar Beach Plaza, La Nuit Blanche, Toronto. October 5, 2019  Residency at Gibraltar Point, Toronto Islands.                                     (most photos and video by Meaghan Ogilvie)

a boat fashioned from a debris bag is hoisted between two pink metal parasols.

kayak paddles flail haphazardly from the jury-rigged ropes.

a phosphorescent beach tarp is pinned down by sandbags and lounge chairs on the city plaza.

driveway markers become fishing rods with streamers flying.
