Art, Design + Nature at the Gladstone Hotel’s Grow Op 2018: AFTER THE FLOOD in Toronto, ON

All four floors of the Gladstone Hotel will be taken over by plants, moss, overflowing water, bumble bee nectar pods, nuclear waste, fig trees and more for Grow Op 2018 this April 18-22

Grow Op is a four-day festival that will transform the Gladstone Hotel with 30+ immersive installations that celebrate innovative ideas and conceptual responses to urbanism, environmental sustainability, landscape design, and contemporary art.

Tammy Salzl's project will be installed in room 204. This new intermedia work is driven by her interest in the power of storytelling and the connections she sees between the human psyche and humankind’s relationship with the natural world. Her interactive sculptures combine video, sound, natural and found materials, crafted constructions, and electronics to create strange yet familiar scenes that juxtapose the natural and human made.
