Come Out and Play Winnipeg took place at Art City in Winnipeg as an interactive cinematic experience composed entirely of light, shadow, and intricate paper sculptures. Working with the amazing staff and participants of Art City we created and installed “sets” of paper cut-outs each evening for a week. In an informal workshop environment, we introduced participants to techniques of paper cutting, model making, and shadow projection. With the help of a vintage boom box with a mic, the participants improvised stories to the paper works we had created together earlier.
As shadows moved across the walls of Art City, strange and surreal stories emerged from the imaginations of the young participants!
