Title: Experience Attractor

Year: 2011-2012

Medium: Driftwood sent through the mail

Description: This project was commissioned by the Blackwood Gallery at U of T Mississauga as part of its Door To Door series taking art into the community. With Experience Attractor members of the public were invited to have driftwood mailed to their home for a temporary stay. The driftwood had postage attached to tags but was otherwise not packaged and was coated with white gesso so that it would accumulate the markings of its various travels. For each visit, a week or two after the driftwood arrived at a destination the host would receive new address labels and postage so they could send Experience Attractor to its next destination.
