A river of spiral coiled forms will emerge over the summer; a transformation of invasive English ivy from Stanley Parks’ forest floor created by community members working with basic coil basketry techniques.
The final installation will be installed along the False Creek seawall as a part of the Science World TELUS World of Science facility renewal project.

Working with invasive English ivy removed from Stanley Park by the Stanley Park Ecology Society approximately 100o people participated in making the Coiled River throughout the month of July 2011. Next summer the work will be a semi-permenant installation outside Science World on the Seawall. It was temporarily installed for the SumerLive concerts this summer, where folks worked on making coils with us
deeper coil forms are made to spec for bird houses, chickadees and nuthatches.
