What is CUTMR?

Come Up To My Room (CUTMR) is the Gladstone Hotel’s annual alternative design event. CUTMR invites artists and designers to show us what goes on inside their heads. Coming together in dialogue and collaboration, participants are limited only by their imaginations, making CUTMR one of the most exciting shows in Toronto.

Exhibition Dates- Jan 16 to 25
Opening Reception: Jan 17

Our Concept

Reflectance is an ambiguous space that can describe more than what meets the eye. The qualities of reflection is intended to question and transform a composition that alters the reality of space. Reshaping this illusion of space is to capture attention and one experiences heterotopia.

Alula, encapsulates: identities, space, time and form. An off-kilter world, a space of otherness, which is neither here nor there; the idea of space being physical and mental that represents an image that is not real but a representation of an interpretation of reality. Through manipulations of reflective surfaces, our entitlement to this process is to give depth to surfaces. The depth between worlds is the cause and effects of the individual as they move and interact with the obscured environment.
