Ballades Mechanique (ver 2.0)

Shadows in the garden

Inspired by the success of Ballades Mechanique (ver 1.0), Version 2.0 was created to continue banished?’s exploration into finding new narrative forms, this time with shadowplay.

This project was commissioned by CityBlossoms – an urban gardening non-profit that works with children and communities. Ballades Mechanique (ver 2.0) uses three “reels” of shadows in a meditative montage-story of what is, what used to be and what is to come into the vacant lot now home to the Marion Street Intergenerational Garden.

** On display at the Marion Street Garden Apr 2-24, 2010**
