I hope it is not as obvious to you as it is to me, but I have been wholly un-inspirable this week. Was it the 3 day vacation? But I think this started before that. I am just a little frazzled, but this sparked my fancy like nothing has sparked me for about 10 days now — so maybe it will be the beginning of an end to the slump.
Toronto’s latest guerrilla street art project, which was organized by Sean Martindale and put on with a grant from Toronto FEAST, challenged artists to alter the cities crumbling planter boxes. The idea was to raise the stakes in our common environments. By directly engaging Toronto’s urban fabric the idea was to encourage more direct participation and interest in our shared public spaces. I think the is outcome fun, sweet, unpretentious and hopefully just the thing to inspire me out of my design doldrums.
