Vertical Line Garden Installation by Julia Jamrozik and Coryn Kempster

DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Vertical Line Garden

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Installation

INSPIRATION:
Working with patterns, order, colour and density, this installation is a play on formal traditional gardens with contemporary ready-made means and hyper un-natural materials. Drawing on the formal language of historical garden design, and the contemporary means of mass-produced safety and construction materials, Vertical Line Garden is a graphic and spatial intervention. Through this juxtaposition of the manufactured and the natural a dialogue is created.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
The main material forming the installation, barricade tape, is typically used to delineate a perimeter and keep people out of a particular area or zone. Here however it is used precisely to bring visitors into the space and entice them to inhabit it. The installation creates a fluid space which responds to its environmental conditions and changes dramatically with the intensity of light and wind.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Depending on the weather, the space is kinetic and very open or it is calm and forms a permeable but closed volume. The transformation is visual but also auditory, as the sound generated by the movement of the barrier tape ranges from a quiet stir to a vigorous rustle. The garden with its canopy of colourful lines is both graphic and playful. As a space it encourages interaction without being prescriptive about use. While adults enjoy the comfort of the custom loungers and take pleasure in the moment of repose, youngsters use the tape as maze to run through, frolic in and explore.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
June - September 2017 Grand-Metis, Quebec, Canada

installation, garden, color, fun, art

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
The project was a winner of an open international competition in 2014 and has been re-installed every year since. The opportunity to re-install, has allowed for an exploration of the garden from a hovering horizontal field (2014) to a mixture of horizontal and vertical elements (2015, 2016) and finally to a fully vertical and enclosing volume (2017). Consistently working with barrier tape, the changing configurations have led to an awareness of the properties of the material and the ways that it can be deployed to heighten a multi-sensorial experience for the visitors. The four iterations have also been a way of testing color-combinations and their interaction with light, layering and spatial pattern-making. Speaking not only to these parameters as aspects of the historical art of garden design but also to the potential of re-imagining and de-contextualizing contemporary mass-produced materials, the iterative project explores effects that can be accomplished with simple means.

CHALLENGE:
Every year since 2014 we have had the opportunity to reimagine the installation: to treat it as a spatial laboratory, to test ideas, to take risks. We've experimented with colour, pattern, density and spatial parameters, transforming from horizontal lines to vertical, and from a field to an engulfing, fluid space. During the hands-on process of the physical installation, with the help of the crew and volunteers from the Reford Gardens/Jardins de Metis, we've found ways to adapt to the unforeseeable changes that arise. With the installation of each iteration, new ideas are generated and the urge to test them propels us forward. For us this is the joy of every colourful, changing garden.
