Paysages éphémères Complet/No Vacancy
outdoor exhibition in Parc des Compagnons-de-Saint-Laurent
Montreal, Quebec
summer 2009

Package Deals provides vacant ephemeral shelter situations for animals and insects within an urban park setting. Parks are last resorts for some species, being a place for preservation, conservation and refuge. Oversize artificial habitats create new temporary homes for the species to reside in as they migrate through an urban centre. As humans, we dominate cities and, as we continue to sprawl outwards into the surrounding suburbs, less and less space for all other species remains vacant.
