House of Leaves is an installation made of thousands of pages from fiction books torn from their bindings and fixed to the walls and ceiling of a hallway. This installation explores the formlessness of perception, when used in unusual ways everyday materials can invent beautiful, unique and inspiring spaces.
In fall 2008 I presented House of Leaves as a part of Toronto’s Nuit Blanche art festival. The outdoor site presented a whole new set of circumstances, rather then copy the first installation I decided to use the new space (a walkway on Ryerson University Campus) to inform the structure. I changed the look of the installation to reflect the ivy vines that grow on Ryerson’s historic buildings.
