The Project

Inspired by the existing park tables at the Vimy Ridge memorial Park, Table of Contents is a table with sculptural proportions programmed to attend multiple activities by diverse park users.

The unpredictable nature of what happens around a table sets the stage for an event to occur - not prescribing the event, but allowing the community to establish it. The poetic and celebratory words donated by the community, now imprinted on the table, allow people to recognize themselves around the table by being affirmatively pictured and validated. The table and its collection of words become the canvas that creates a space for events to unfold.
