Robert Filliou’s notion of the Eternal Network is a myth that has persisted and opened up a realm of possibilities affiliated with a utopian strain of Canadian practice. With the impulse to extending Filliou’s network and spirit I gave these souvenirs: pennants, buttons, postcard and rubber stamp prints to the artists I was meeting in the gallery and beyond. The idea was having a moment of encounter at the time of giving away these objects, exchanging information on all levels, on how we sustain a viable art practice, influencing one another not only in our art but in our daily lives.
