Come home to the forest, gather ’round the fire, and share in celebrating the completion of Animal Forms, an interactive love-letter to the land by Guelph Artist in Residence, Miki Tamblyn.
Animal Forms is an interactive mask making and wearing project about shapeshifting, playing, and empathy between species. How might our experience of the world change if we practised seeing through another’s eyes?
Throughout the summer the people of Guelph have participated in this project through facilitated ‘sit-spot’ sessions, interacting with hand-made animal masks and documenting their reflections through journaling and photography. Now that these sessions are complete and the masks have been brought to life, join Miki for one last gathering to say thank you to the forest and to our animal kin.
This final gathering will include an artist talk from Miki about the process of mask-making, gratitude sharing around a fire, and an opportunity for all to express and ponder their connection to land and our other-than-human relations. The masks, photographs, and journals will also be on display and available for interaction.
