Mont Royal, Montréal, QC, 2011
The forest is an amazing playground. WIth imagination anything is possible – it just awaits discovery. I have always been intrigued with the childhood idea that that there are lives in the forest that we do not know about. I wanted to play with this idea of wonder, and create something that would foster the sense of childhood excitement. It is left to the viewer to imagine what type of creatures might live behind these doors and what their lives might be like.
This project was created around the same time as I created the Invitation to Observe installation. These too are on Mont Royal, in Montreal. The little doors were located at the base of trees along parts of the some of the trails.
