To everyone who tuned in, stopped by, or got excited enough to temporarily shake their Winter stupor and hang out with us in abstract Hibernation space – Thank You!

“Pick Up Sticks,” a fire sculpture in honour of Matthew Mark

“A Fine Line,” a brief performance celebrating the end of The Hibernation Project 2021. Caitlind Brown & Wayne Garrett repeatedly dipped a matchstick Coronavirus into hot embers, trying not to catch the wooden ball on fire, until it inevitably burned.


Thank You!
