The Floating Forest

I was in the city on Wednesday and I discovered the Floating Forest by Max Streicher, which is part of the Earth Day celebration.  This inflatable forest is made entirely of recycled billboard vinyl and is a memorial to the lost forests which were cleared from many areas of Canada before civilization. 

Like many exhibits in this amazing space, it certainly made me pause to admire this most unusual piece of art, though most people seemed oblivious to its existence as they hurried about their business.
