I took a swing by my officially appointed location for StreetART’s Outside the Box project today to snap some ‘Before” pix in preparation for painting over the next few days (if it isn’t too rainy…). I could hardly have asked for a more classically Torontonian spot! Situated at Front St & Blue Jays Way, one has an amazing view of the CN Tower on one angle and the Rogers Center on the other, with Michael Snow’s golden sports fans dangling directly over the box from a southward line of sight.
My design this year will incorporate elements of the surrounding area, including inspired distortions in time and perception that suggest themselves throughout the observational process. The overall effect I hope will be for the object to become something like a fractal mirror, or a tin can crushed by the mind. We’ll see!
