This Video piece is a Short Doc. of the process and installation of a large-scale intervention on Queen St. West in Toronto, where an entire plaza was boarded up and painted out in brown. The work attempts to reflect and probe a discussion on the disuse of valuable centralized communal space, provoking questions of how local businesses and establishments, community activities, neighbourhood aesthetic and vibrance, and the individual people that live and work in the local area are / or could be effected by the vacancy of the space. TIMEANDDESIRE is an interventive style of work that examines the concept of public and private spaces, as well as the role perception plays in constructing our realities.
