Golden Book 3: Pulse

Golden Book 3: Pulse accompanies MC Coble’s 2016 performance, in which the artist climbs the iconic Cinesphere at Ontario Place each day in order to repurpose it as a beacon of protest. A series of Morse Code messages are transmitted from the structure to receivers on the ground positioned throughout Ontario Place island who then relay the message on using their own light source. The transmitted messages are composed of statements and chants used in recent and current protests and fights for civil rights which will be selected from the artist’s archive as well as in collaboration with local community. This collaborative gesture of solidarity merges activist and nautical language to amplify a collective call for action.

Books Red

Books about artists (and sometimes by artists) allow artists' work to be accessed by more people in more places. Artist books have the uncanny ability to both expand and convolute artists’ practices. Unabashedly enjoying the pun, Books Red is a fragrance composed entirely of materials derived from sources that are red, at one moment in their lifespan. The fragrance is formulated to be impossibly ever-lasting, forever extending in all directions.
