Micropolis 2.0 - A screenprint installation created by Allison Moore & Arthur Desmarteaux. Documentation of the installation at Open Studio - Toronto. January 12 – February 18, 2012.
Micropolis is an ever-expanding installation comprised of collaged screen and digital prints, assembled so they evoke a busy modern commercial street with pedestrians, creatures and vehicles passing by. The installation has an anthropological character inspired by the cityscapes of Québec City, Montréal and Toronto. The installation is “2.5D,” or two and a half dimensions — a modular diorama of cardboard figures and shapes placed at different levels on wooden shelves, covering the perimeter of the gallery walls.
