John Loerchner & Laura MendeS
Project presented in partnership with
SCOTIABANK NUIT BLANCHE TORONTO
Confronted by a series of free-standing doorways, participants are asked to make a choice; for every decision there lies a doorway; through that doorway, another set of doorways; and through that doorway, another set of choices.
Overhead, a large screen tracks and visualizes the data from the selections made throughout the night, revealing intricate parallels and unforeseen insights between choices and choice-makers.
