The City of Gears

Mike Parsons - Toronto, Canada


From a distance the city appears as an ominous gear propelled by an endless sea of faceless denizens.  In order to gain a better understanding of the monstrous metropolis Mike developed a particular artist’s process involving street interventions, festival performances, gallery exhibitions and new media installations. Through the inclusion of such public presentations, Mike has been able to meet thousands of people from all over the world and of all walks of life. From this new vantage the city remains as a giant gear only now it is all the unique characters, not anonymous cogs, who fuel the machine!


Mike Parsons is an award winning fine artist who uses  animations, comic books and public works to express an optimistic warning towards future days.
