Today we will have peaches and corn for snack and homemade cupcakes for the birthday girl among us. Thinking about anonymity and how to represent ourselves without triggering stereotypes and the reduction of our identities to preconceived notions of

We created the tele-cozy to withstand the elements. Our worries about fabric weighted with water were solved with velcro. We found a solution to how the panels in the wind could act as sails.  But we did not account for fire. Fire used the structure as its source of fuel releasing heat and light until nothing remained but ashes. 

The corner of Dundas West and Pacific is less bright and our hearts ache at the absence of  this quirky, laughing installation.

Life happened to the telephone in the booth we adorned. The phone was functioning when we started and now it looks like it exploded off its mount. The Art of Conversation indeed.

There is no more boring conversation than the one where everybody agrees.

Now ready for viewing Pacific at the corner of Dundas West.

"In most places, late liberal power does not exercise itself through the spectacular display of drawn and quartered bodies...Neo-liberalism works by colonizing the field of value - reducing all social values to one market value -exhausting alternative social projects by denying them sustenance."
-Elizabeth Povinelli (Economies of Abandonment)

Our beds are empty two-thirds of the time. Our living rooms are empty seven-eighths of the time. Our office buldings are empty one-half of the time. It's time we gave this some thought.
