SIGNS OF CHANGE


Signs of Change was a solo exhibition of photographs of past ice text projects plus an offsite component of new words made of ice, which were left to melt in the urban landscape on a weekly basis. Each word was pertinent to the site and spoke to our need to subjugate nature and to dominate the environment. At the end of the project I asked people to make a sentence from the words such as: I consume logic and justify denial.

Justify
How does a city justify a concrete park on busy thoroughfare? It used to house a statue of Christopher Columbus, which was stolen and mysteriously re-appeared in a better loved location.
