Striped Canary is the collaborative project of artists Stephen B. Nguyen and Wade Kavanaugh. Together, they are known for creating large immersive installations using everyday materials such as paper and wood and creating imaginative landscapes that investigate our memories and perceptions.

In the spring of 2022, The Bentway invited the duo to develop a project that would be installed in September and open to the public in the Fall. The result is “Confluence”, an immersive installation under The Bentway that utilizes picnic tables, a symbol of a shared public experience, to form a dynamic sculpture that evokes Toronto’s buried, lost rivers. 

Something worth highlighting is that, once the installation runs its course, the wood will be used by a local architecture firm in upcoming projects.
