We Are All Animals - Public Art at HighPark Condominiums
The Daniels Corporation commissioned artists Elle Flanders and Tamira Sawatzky of Public Studio together with Lili Huston-Herterich, Josh Schonblum, and Christopher Carleton Jadoo to create We Are All Animals at the base of HighPark Condominiums. Sited on the edge of one of Toronto’s largest urban parks, the work addresses the co-existence of ecology, environmentalism and technology. The LED screen is a landscape tableau that presents an ongoing film built with digital gaming software, and the polygon-based build of the 3D modelled forms is mimicked in the design of the stone coyotes. A bronze touchstone by the entry is inscribed with a text that reminds us that we too are of nature – “we are all animals”.
