Presented as part of the 'Communication Mods' exhibition at York Quay Gallery, Harbourfront Centre, 'WhereTheHeartIs' is a cameraphone-based installation created specifically for the artists home city of Toronto.
During the installation period the gallery audience was asked to use their cameraphones to contribute iconic images of Toronto - people, places and things - to a screen in the gallery. These images were then instantly sent to small screen which the artist wore over his heart.
During the two-month exhibition, this installation created a direct link between the artist and his home city, regardless of location. In addition to the Toronto exhibition, the 'HeartScreen' was showcased in the Future Fashion Event in Pisa, Italy.
