Toilet seats are adorned with references to contemporary media concerning the housing crisis from across Canada. These objects are displayed on top of newspaper articles from 1981 up to the present and historical images. Bringing the past and present into a conversation, Balancing Act reminds us to take a wide view of history as we consider how to address housing challenges moving forward – a view that balances our memories of the past with the realities of the present and the shifting needs of the future
