Dwelling is a 4FT x 14FT mixed media mosaic that honours and memorializes human rights activist and founding co-operative housing manager Diane Frankling. Our development process was anchored by our goal: to create an artwork through inclusive and innovative collaborative artistic practices.
200+ community members contributed to the conceptual development and making of Dwelling over eight months. At several community consultations, we shared ideas, stories, and produced simple sketches. Lead visual artist Anna Camilleri stewarded the progression of this arts-based research into a design and fabrication plan that reflects themes and motifs that emerged through a generative process. 2,000+ hours were invested into the collaborative creation of this artwork.
