Manholes is a site-responsive animation that explores the typology of manhole covers recontextualised from their original geographic locations and projected onto a sidewalk in downtown Toronto during the Nuit Blanche festival. The video featured animated photos of manhole covers documented throughout the world – revealing the intricate decorative elements and designs which propel the utilitarian function of the covers into an aesthetic and cultural realm.
