Project done in collaboration with Michael Wideman
This project is one set at a regional scale, with a focus on
exploring the sedimentary processes and movements within the Greater Toronto Region. As a team,
we embarked on a series of nine mapping exercises, with parameters based on information loosely
relating to longitudinal, latitudinal, vertical movements or processes. And within each parameter,
we developed inventory, analysis and proposal maps. This in-depth study includes information such
as the retreating Laurentide ice sheet, the leftover geologic features of glaciation as well as the
transferal of till during construction/excavation projects.
As the physical model component to our project, we thought it would be fitting to use cake as our
fabrication material as a typical layer cake is reminiscent of the geologic strata. The many different
interventions we proposed around the Toronto Region(inspired by the leftover drumlins, bluffs, and outcrops
of glaciation), was sculpted by the cake and candy material. Our intention was to have the model as an
interactive piece, allowing for the audience to create their own landforms of their own.
