A special thank you to the following students who participated in this unique collaboration: Eric Kim, Chelsea McKay, Kysia Tindall, Erica Von Dok, & Nicole Davis Schaak. And a huge thank you to Matt Macintosh who invited the SKSS students to share about art and curating.
For this installation we were inspired by our peers and their love for skiing. An invisible student is stationed at his desk, eager for another day of skiing, however he was denied the luxury. This is how we created the concept of “Ski School”.
Students are notorious for skipping school in the winter months and this particular student is spending another day at school thinking about the slopes, while his friends are all enjoying the fresh powder.
We were striving for an 80’s retro style theme so we incorporated the dated skis alongside with the vibrant pink and green accent colours to capture the old fashioned vibe we all love.
