PATCHWORKED IN CANADA by Dear Human

Funded by Canada Council for the Arts, Dear Human’s “Patchworked In Canada” is a two stage project: First, as a mural made from 1200 reworked vintage Portuguese tiles, exhibited this month at the Toronto Design Offsite Festival’s hub. Then it takes to the streets as an interactive urban art project. Throughout select areas of Toronto, Montreal, and Vancouver, the tiles will be tagged as individual installations, to be found and taken home by lucky and observant finders. 

Dear Human <www.dearhuman.ca> is the creative studio of ceramic, architect, sculpture, design duo Jasna Sokolovic and Noel O’Connell. 

A flower growing in a crack of the concrete. This project is like that; finding unanticipated beauty in the urban landscape, inviting a moment of pause and response. The search for these small offerings is an open invitation to explore and play.
