I spent the night of March 8th sleeping in the bed of soil. It was a restless night due to the constant flow of steady traffic outside the gallery. The gallery is located on the Huron Church Road, the main artery leading to the Ambassador Bridge, the busiest international border crossing in North America. I wondered if the soil was as disturbed as I was as I could feel the vibrations of transport trucks through the soil. I slept only 1 hour from 3-4am. At 5am I left the gallery.
