Architectural Consultant & Collaborator: David Drake
Fabricator: Megan Blake

These objects were designed as a modular pedistal system for the purpose of displaying and storing the fabric bundles in Footnotes. Built from maple and water-jet cut silicone rubber, each component is part of a larger system of interchangeable parts, together forming units that can be modified instantly.

I acknowledge the support of the Canada Council for the Arts, which last year invested $153 million to bring the arts to Canadians throughout the country.

Je remercie le Conseil des arts du Canada de son soutien. L’an dernier, le Conseil  a investi 153 millions de dollars pour mettre de l’art dans la vie des Canadiennes et des Canadiens de tout le pays.
