Super 8 document of the inflatable tunnel project by the October Group during the Metro Days of Action. A 150' long building was inflated using the air vents in front of Toronto’s Nathan Phillips Square. The October Group action references both public institution and temporary home to protest the erosion of the city.

The October Group is Adrian Blackwell, Cecelia Chen, Daniel Diaz Orozco, Kenneth Hayes, Barry Isenor, Mike Lawrence, Christie Pearson, Kika Thorne, Weibke von Carolsfeld, Derek Wang, and everyone who played with us, picketed for us.
