Materia medica

University of Toronto Art Centre (adjacent to the urban buried waterway, Taddle Creek)

Materia medica is a response. Here, material processes with local plants embed a kind of awareness of the land. In knowing where and how colours can be grown, cultivated, and extracted sustainably, a certain intimacy with place occurs. 

 

Materia medica was supported by the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada.
