To Whom it May Concern

Travis Freeman - Toronto, Canada
Craig Fahner - Calgary, Canada

Constructed Situation

From the tops of the tallest tress in Torrance Barrens Dark Sky Preserve, Freeman will act as a messenger to the Universe. You are invited to use the artist as a conduit to send your words into the night sky and whoever might be listening above. Text a message to 647-499-7544 and Freeman will call it out from his place in the treetops. As many messages, secrets, dreams, questions, confessions, and wishes as possible will be read out during the 12 hours of Scotiabank Nuit Blanche. A live broadcast will be sent from the Barrens to the Queen Mother Café. From there you can see the video feed from the Dark Sky Preserve, hear the words as I cry them out, and read the texts as they come in from around the city.

To Whom It May Concern uses current technology for a magical and ancient purpose. Is it possible that we can repurpose our devices to bring us closer to the nature?

Travis Freeman uses his art to explore the mythological aspects of contemporary culture.  Originally from Minnesota, he moved to Toronto in 2010.
