Permission Series, 2013-14
Exhibited at BIGonBloor Festival, several Interventions throughout Toronto, ON
Originally inspired by residential "permit parking" signs and local reports of citizens being fined for playing road hockey without a permit, Permission Series plays with the ambiguity of the word "permit," either granting permission for people to play wherever the signs are erected or denoting a space where playing is only allowed with the accompaniment of a permit. Several signs were installed as interventions throughout the streets of Toronto. In 2013 and 2014 the work was turned into an interactive sculpture for the BIGonBloor Festival.
