Black Light Thrift Store

2007, as part of PLAY/GROUNDS, curated by Elaine Gaito and Chris Reynolds.

A one day intervention in a Salvation Army Thrift Store in downtown Toronto. The store's regular lighting fixtures were replaced with CSI-style ultraviolet lights, directing attention toward the residue of previous owners. The gesture brought to the forefront all the lint, bodily fluids, spills and stains covering the used garments, invisible under normal lighting.
