‘boole + wargame’ installation view at diaz contemporary, toronto

christian giroux and daniel young are two canadian artists who now work together in the creation of sculptural art. the two collaborate in a variety of strange ways since they live over an hour away from each other. the two swap digital files and design drawings and in the end translate their works into physical reality. their artwork combines found objects that are mainly furniture pieces from ikea and additional pieces made from aluminium or wood.  using the ikea furniture as a starting point, the two build out or on top of to create a variety of geometric sculptural work.
