Flights of Fancy, a new exhibit of surrealist collages and rope
work by Ingrid Bird, opened in the Music Resource Centre, School of Music,
on Thursday, June 30. Ms. Birdís work captures that place our mind wanders
to, that area in our peripheral vision that we can sort of see but not
quite focus on. Using chips and fragments of magazine stock as a source
of colour or paint, Ms. Bird creates collages that are surrealist versions
of situations or scenes. Her rope work is an experimentation in how to
draft Celtic knot designs using hemp rope. The show runs until Sept. 30,
