A 175-page choose-your-own-adventure lucid dream comic temporarily wheat-pasted throughout Calgary's downtown core, Scavenger encourages festival attendees to follow the trails of diverging narratives that bridge the physical and temporal spaces between both festival venues and show times. With each grouping featuring two possible routes, alternate narratives collide with alternate pathways, temporarily activating the interstitial spaces of Sled Island. Can you follow all of the narrative paths before they disappear?
