Mathew Borrett

For 'Biidaaban: First Light', Lisa Jackson joined forces with 3D artist Mathew Borrett to create an interactive virtual reality experience that pictures a future Toronto overgrown by nature. Intertwining scenes of the city’s downtown core overtaken by plant life with spoken and written text of the Wendat, Kanien’kehá:ka (Mohawk) and Anishinaabe (Ojibway), 'Biidaaban: First Light' is a work of Indigenous futurism that creates a world where languages and vegetation thrive. Join Jackson and Borrett for a conversation that delves into the process of making this extraordinary work.

Open to all ages and levels, participants will learn the purposes of drawing and documenting biological entities, as well as techniques for rendering the unique contours and vibrant colours of a variety of insect species. Taking place alongside Mark Dion’s exhibition 'The Life of a Dead Tree', these workshops give participants the opportunity to draw insect specimens that have been cultivated from the tree on display, including the emerald ash borer beetle.
