Palmerston Square – Tubular Fun Project

After much preparatory painting, stenciling, and knitting, neighbours came out on Saturday September 28 to install some interactive art in their Square.

 

The Tubular Fun Project recreates the fridge magnet poetry concept on a larger scale:  for interactive play on large fences.   Words can be moved around to create phrases, sentences, and poems.  The concept originated with Annex-based artist – Ksenija Spasic – and was sponsored in Seaton Village, as part of the Homegrown National Park Palmerston Square Project, by Yu Li.  We installed knit and textile pieces, and did shadow painting along the lines cast by knit pieces.

Homegrown National Park Project – on our Street!

Today we became a satellite park of the David Suzuki Homegrown National Park!   With the new sign installed, and the knit-bombed bench in place, we were ready to dream big green dreams about turning our street into a fabulous extension of our neighbourhood park.

Within minutes, the bench became an epicenter of activity.  Kids love the knitbombing and the bench anchored activity.  Suddenly, we have more lingering visitors and hopscotch on our sidewalk.
