Canadian artist Floyd Elzinga’s rich imagination inspired this playful, pop-inspired, oversized outdoor zipper. Unzip the Earth has an oversized steel zipper handle and concrete brick teeth that give the illusion of ‘unzipping’ the hillside. This is number 6 in an edition of 9. Elzinga’s work has been commissioned for public and private spaces in Canada, the US and internationally. He holds a degree in Earth Sciences from McMaster University, a BFA from the Nova Scotia College of Art and Design and a Certificate of Art Fundamentals from Sheridan College of Applied Arts & Technology.
