It took 12 hours to properly document 122 quotes, comments and drawing. Taking care to read and appreciate each message and attempting to unravel the web of unique thoughts and personalities that had now become part of the piece.
The cluttered feeling of the space inside had exploded onto the glass which surrounded it. Marker messages and finger prints obscured the view of the original work inside and brought to mind the many structures I’d seen covered in commentary and artwork by random anonymous individuals; our local subways, the downtown alleys in Vancouver, the sections of the Berlin Wall I’d seen when I was in Nova Scotia. I realized that my work had taken on new and unexpected properties, and I allowed myself to take it all in.
