poster d’artiste édition limitée, 32cmX47cm
Projet d’artiste crée pour l’exposition The Projects: Port Credit organisée par la Blackwood Gallery. Il s’agit d’un poster de la carte routière de Port Credit comprenant une piste cyclable détaillée qui retrace l’histoire et les frontières de cette ville côtière. Cette piste mêle informations historiques et statistiques. Avec ce projet je propose une route qui lie physiquement et cinétiquement les diverses communautés qui constituent Port Credit.

I have created a map with proposed route details - including statistical information and historical references - that will be available gratis to visitors of the exhibition.
