At Sixes and Sevens

sixesandsevens_01

At Sixes and Sevens is a video installation consisting of a geodesic dome structure that acts as a projection surface for a screen showing a 10 minute 360 degree video loop. The work was created for the In/Future exhibition at Ontario Place in Toronto. This abandoned theme park was transformed into a temporary site for an art exhibition. It is famously the site of the first IMAX theatre that was housed in a geodesic dome called the Cinesphere. The video loop contains images from Ontario Place, the Expo 67 site in Montreal, and shots of a LARPing event where thousands of players enact a fantasy game version of the past. Transitions between these sections are articulated by the swirling interior of a snow dome.
