Location

Toronto Reference Library

See more than 100 makers and interactive craft/tech/DIY installations! This year, you can find two of our MAAD Alumni - Elija Montgomery and Egan O'Sullivan and their amazing creations!

 

Elija Montgomery -- since 2013, Elija has been designing monsters. A few large enough to wear: not quite costumers, not puppets, but a strange and imaginative combination.

 

Egan O'Sullivan -- "Knit Tent" is a tent sewn out of discarded knitted sweaters. The installation attempts to drawa attention to present-day consumption and textile waste.
