Pop Up Park / Forgotten Spaces

Underutilized urban spaces dot the fabric of cities throughout Canada. For Ottawa’s local arts festival, Chinatown Remixed, we wanted to draw attention to these spaces that society forgot. Pursuing this goal Jackpine Labs turned a vacant parking lot into a pop-up park by installing artistic benches and atmospheric lighting. We also collaborated with local artist Colin White to present sketches from his alleyway sketching collective, Forgotten Spaces. A big thanks to Monopolatte and Pygmalion Spa for providing the space for this project.
