Sammy Baloji’s and Filip De Boeck’s work explores the past, present, and future dreams of a city’s inhabitants. In this workshop, we will discuss how Baloji combines both the past and the future, the old and the new, in his photographs. Then we will transform historic images of Toronto’s landscape into new futuristic scenes using plastic, paper and textiles.
