The Known Effects of Lightning on the Body
A low-lit installation in which a match is projected onto a sheet of copper. The match is lit, and "bows" as it burns, its body slowly succumbing to gravity, physics, and the chemical reaction that began in the match-head. Above, a single, mirrored bulb directs light and the eye upward, its form in vertical symmetry with the match's. When the match extinguishes itself, it dissolves, only to be replaced with a different match, which burns and bows in turn.

Originally presented at YYZ Artist-Run Centre, 2014. Produced with the Support of the Canada Council.

For furniture makers, it is not always the object alone that is pursued. As students at OCAD University, we are encouraged to look beyond the final object, to explore and to develop our thinking around the context. The role of furniture as a medium for personal expression, as a reflection of social and cultural norms, and as an influence upon human behaviour becomes the focal point. This exhibition presents original furniture pieces that take these broader discussions into consideration. Growth requires exploration, the goal is to plant the seeds of passion rather than ego. This annual exhibition of furniture created by the students of OCAD University is now in its eighth year and has become a valued tradition within the school’s design department.
