Black Grass was collaboratively assembled by over 70 people from across Simcoe County. Working as a group to attach 20,000 zip ties to chain link fencing, participants shared stories about their individual experiences and relationships to the idea of home. The stories that were shared are permanently woven into this piece, capturing the unique ways that people think about home and what they would like it to look like in the future. The Black Grass occupies a 1,000-square-foot space in the Massey Family Sculpture Court.
