HERALD (2010)
ink on wall
The Draward Space
Concordia University

HERALD was a two-month-long live drawing installation completed on two facing walls. One side depicted a fictitious smoke ritual that had taken place on a rooftop. The other side showed what was hallucinated by those present: fireworks becoming waterfalls becoming fireworks. After two months, the artist appeared as a ghost and unemotionally ‘whited out’ the drawings.
