Guerrilla ice text installations on the streets of Toronto, based on the book Municipal Mind, by the city’s poet laureate, Pier Giorgio Di Cicco. I was inspired by his eloquent writing, about how the vibrancy of a city depends on the creative spirit of the individuals who occupy it. I created ice letters in my backyard and transported them to nearby sites with a toboggan. At the time the neighbourhood of Queen Street West in Toronto was a bustling area of art galleries and cafés, which was in the process of being gentrified. Like the displaced artists of 48 Abell Street, I needed to install the text and photograph it immediately because my ice graffiti was usually vandalized by the next day.
