Folding Grids

Collected antitheft bars, enamel.

Folding Grids was produced through collecting and restoring anti-theft bars from demolition sites in developing neighbourhoods of Vancouver. The 3/4” steel grids only warp and bend under immense pressure. These grids were installed in Hyphenated Sites, a mobile exhibition platform set inside a shipping container playing host to multiple dialogues around the use of space in an active port city.
