Eileen Finn is a landscape architect, gardener, parent and artist in Montréal. She designs spaces that are contemporary, ecological and playful for residential and educational clients.
Field Dress is an interactive installation that playfully explores how public spaces reject or incorporate urban ecologies. Ghillie suits customized for Toronto urban plant communities can be tried on by gallery goers wishing to be urban nature and explore and stalk the Gladstone and galleries. Postcards show the ghillie-suited figure blending into or sticking out from iconic Toronto landscapes.
