Duke of York Boulevard and Burnhamthorpe Road West
Two sculptures of laser-cut panels of birds are inset with sandcast glass. The artwork recalls the story of the passenger pigeons that used to number in the billions as they flew across the southern coast of Lake Ontario during their migrations and would roost on the southern edge of Mississauga.
Alex Anagnostou is a Mississauga-based artist. She designs and creates sandcast and blown glass sculpture, awards and architectural installations for residential, commercial and public venues.
Inspired by the history of glass lenses, technology and satellite imagery, her work seeks to capture and communicate the underlying interconnections, structures and energies that we cannot always see.
