Playing Tag

A typical autumn scene (above) reminded me of practicing scales on the piano and was the inspiration for this project. Soon there were musical notes everywhere- broken glass,cigarettes and raindrops.

 A few months ago I received a very welcomed grant from the Winnipeg Arts Council to create a series of prints using images of the Exchange District and, by superimposing the musical staff on them like a Graffiti tag, evoke playable and imagined sound and music. These prints are near completion. 

This subject of this blog is a parallel project.

 I wanted to reunite these images with their places of origin-literally take them back to the streets in the form of altered, inexpensive posters. This is the work in progress.
