The work of T&T (Tony Romano and Tyler Brett) reflects on ideas of sustainability, green architecture and technological progress. Their artworks frequently include elements of natural systems such as solar power and organic filters in conjunction with recycled and reconfigured technology. Over the course of their diverse artistic practice, they have developed a survivalist-informed aesthetic, creating whimsical, yet critically considered artworks that provide astute commentary on our historical moment.

This exhibition catalogue accompanied the exhibition False Creek that was commissioned by the Pendulum Gallery to coincide with the 2010 Olympic and Paralympic Winter Games. Installed in HSBC Bank’s main office building in downtown Vancouver, False Creek was comprised of three sculptural assemblages, a panoramic print and a children’s colouring centre. The exhibition temporarily transformed the corporate environment of a bank and public atrium into an optimistic post-apocalyptic environment.

False Creek was the first participating exhibition in Other Sight’s three part series When the Hosts Come Home.
