program note:

Residing in Toronto, my daily routine encompasses only a fraction of this vast city. Even the nearby locales remain unfamiliar, evoking a mix of both intrigue and unease. "I Went to Visit Yesterday's Ruins" traverses these emotions, embarking on an imaginative urban exploration of a defunct broom factory dating back to 1921, situated just across the street from my residence. To me, the allure of urban exploration lies in unearthing the essence and history unique to a specific place. While the weight of a location's history is palpable when visiting long-inhabited and preserved areas, in a recently settled and ever-changing city, these aging structures stand as some of our only physical monuments to the past.
