Inspired by the magical shape shifting qualities of illumination, SURROUND reimagines cocoons found in nature as vibrant luminescent shelters. As a solo experience, each vessel of light invites you to enter within and be transported to a visual fantasy of metamorphosis. Gently enter the cocoon or stand beneath it, neither the artist or Ontario Place are liable for any injuries that may incur.
