Last year, the Toronto Complaints Choir, produced as part of the 2010-2011 World Stage season at Harbourfront Centre, collected over 1000 grievances, gripes, and annoyances from people across the city. The choir transformed these troubles into a siren song for the disenchanted. Across twelve days in July, Bruce Mau Design (BMD) will work to do some-thing about it. Our pop-up studio, working in real-time in the Propeller Centre, will design solutions in response to the complaints. A book of these ideas will be simultaneously designed, and then given away throughout this city we love. This interactive, cross-disciplinary design event invites Toronto to turn our problems into possibilities. A mix of ingenuity, creativity, (many) mistakes, exploration, and optimism will get us there. The Toronto Complaints Choir will join us in the gallery on July 28 for a special performance. We invite you to visit the pop-up studio, Wednesday July 20-Sunday July 31, 2011, to see our work in progress and contribute ideas to the project.
