Description of work

Platforms 2020: Public Works is a monthly series of temporary public art projects that presented from June 2020 until the end of December 2020.

These artworks were selected through an open call inviting Vancouver-based artists to share projects that they have been working on that respond to the circumstances of living during a pandemic and critical time of change.

The public art program was launched on transit shelters, billboards, and video screens throughout the city.

Artist statement

Pandemik Piks, a series of drawings presented on 20 digital screens throughout the city, was originally conceived on Instagram loosely around the idea of hair. Midway through the project, when the deaths of Breonna Taylor and countless others filled the news, the artist's feed was populated with black squares. In response to these ambiguous squares the artist scanned, altered, and reversed the drawings, creating exploding and flowering hair piks. The series now reflects her thoughts on the world being on fire.
