When completed in 1966, the Gardiner Expressway embodied the ambitions and hopes typically associated with the car - speed, abundance, and the suburban lifestyle. Today, although recognized as a necessary infrastructure, the Expressway is perceived as a scar on the city's landscape, increasingly viewed as a costly and deteriorating eyesore. The Gardiner's "other-side" is an invitation to reconsider a place that is commonly known yet remains largely unseen. Taking the form of an immersive installation, the project deploys atmospheric effects of light, snow and sound to transform the space into a surreal but inviting environment. It uses the vitality of temporary human inhabitation to challenge preconceived notions and suggest new type of public realm.
