POCKETS, Société des Arts Technologiques [SAT], August 2016 during the Montréal World Social Forum.       “We need enormous pockets, pockets big enough for our families and our friends, and even the people who aren't on our lists, people we've never met but still want to protect. We need pockets for boroughs and for cities, a pocket that could hold the universe.”   ― Jonathan Safran Foer, Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close    The installation was created using recycled fabric materials and dyes, foliage, sentimental (found) objects, and whimsical anecdotes that capture personal memories from Montreal. Priya invites you to gently engage with these ephemeral pieces and to be open to serendipitous exchanges.  Each pocket was hand-stitched through a collaborative process with dear people close to Priya. This project would not have been possible without the support from: Merrie Houghton, Stefan Christoff, Melissa Charles, Lucie Swan, Chris Gribbon, and Jordan Loeppky-Kolesnik. Thank you.
