BARRICADE TAPE IS a ubiquitous material, typically
used to delineate a perimeter and keep people out. But
at the International Garden Festival in Grand-Métis
in the summer of 2017, barrier tape invited people in,
enticing them to inhabit the Vertical Line Garden.
Vertical Line Garden is an evolving experiment in
using this off-the-shelf material in non-standard
ways. Thousands of strands of tape are suspended
from a simple wooden framework with a stretched
net as armature, creating a canopy of colourful lines.
The space encourages interaction without being
prescriptive: adults enjoy a few moments of repose in
the custom bent-steel-and-fabric lounge chairs, while
youngsters run, using the tape as a maze - a place to
frolic and explore.
Vertical Line Garden changes dramatically with
the intensity of light and wind. It can be kinetic
and open, or calm and closed - yet permeable. The
transformation is visual but also auditory, as the tape's
movement varies from a quiet stir to a vigorous rustle.
Every year since 2014, when the design was one of
the winners of the Festival's open competition, Métis
has welcomed a version of the garden, offering us
an opportunity to reimagine the installation: to treat
it as a spatial laboratory, to test ideas, to take risks.
We've experimented with colour, pattern, density
and spatial parameters, transforming from horizontal
lines to vertical, and from a field to an engulfing, fluid
space. During the hands-on process of the physical
installation, with the help of the crew and volunteers
from the Reford Gardens/Jardins de Métis, we've
found ways to adapt to the unforeseeable changes
that arise. With the installation of each iteration, new
ideas are generated and the urge to test them propels
us forward. For us this is the joy of every colourful,
changing garden.
