Cutlery Canopy at First Canadian Place

An Earth Week art installation hangs from the main lobby of First Canadian Place in downtown Toronto. It consists of over 20,000 pieces of used cutlery salvaged from the garbage and recycling bins of food courts hanging from a wooden construct tree.

Commissioned by Broofield Property Partners and displayed both at FCP and also the Exchange Tower on King Street West from April 17-28. The work is by Labspace Studio artists John Loerchner and Laura Mendes.

"Every year Canadians throw away three million tonnes of plastic waste. Only 10% of this waste is actually recycled; the rest is incinerated or ends up in landfills. Cutlery Canopy seeks to visualize our human impact on the environment and show that we are all connected and responsible to the earth." 

Earth Day is April 22, 2017. Go celebrate by planting a tree somewhere!
