If it is broken throw it away! – Environmental Installations
Since the 1960s, building material from demolished structures in the Toronto area has been dumped as land fill in Lake Ontario to form the Leslie Spit: an important stop on the migratory path of over 290 bird species.
The material dumped at the Spit is rich in history and meaning. Where did these bricks come from? What is the history of these structures that no longer exist? What value do we place on our architectural past in Canada and what does this say about the value we put on the future appearance of our communities?
