The Doodlers (Students from University of Waterloo School of Architecture)

Christina ChowAmina LalorStanley Sun, and Joon Yang of the University of Waterloo School of Architecture initially met with Leila Moslemi of York University to help John McMinn and Melana Janzen produce the aluminum backpack stands. They were invited to create a work for the Field Trip project and responded with an interactive piece that asks visitors to contribute to a scrolling artwork. Evoking children’s toys, knobs advance the continuous roll of paper as children and adults share their stories. A canvas roll in the box holds pencils and crayons, a compartment displays collected pencil shavings, and a roll of washi tape is provided to mend torn paper.


Message to Japan:

“It takes a thousand voices to tell a single story.” Please tell us yours.
