Victoria - This summer, Open Space presents collaborative art work, Forestrial Brain, by the duo of Jim Holyoak and Matt Shane.
It starts in the wild lands of the West Coast Trail, where Holyoak and Shane will spend 10 days hiking to collect impressions, visual documentation, and to provoke their imaginations for a vast and immersive drawing that will cover the walls at Open Space.
