Me Me Me is a combination of a floor plan, an architect’s model and a peep hole. As if given
powers of X-ray vision, viewers will be able to see through the façade of a model condo building,
revealing the individual units and people inside.
In a big city like Toronto, the walls between us make it easy to feel that we are alone or have privacy.
The walls obscure that we are constantly surrounded by other people. By removing a wall, Me Me Me will
reveal hidden interactions and patterns. Some viewers may see isolation and some may see comfort in hidden
company. Others may see something funny or ironic, or claustrophobic, or a new view of individualized
consumption. Hopefully everyone will see their city in a way they hadn't thought of before.
