Flag Field, 2016, custom flags on flagpoles ranging from 25-50 ft. high, Toronto
Flag Field is a permanent installation for the City of Toronto. It consists of 14 flags on flagpoles ranging from 25 to 50 feet high. Whereas most flags are emblems for nations or institutions, these are simple drawings of dogs and cats, the sea and sky. Two clusters of flagpoles in two areas in the park, each adjacent to the main footpath. The flags mark the site as a civic space, bring imagination and colour to the park, and partially screen surrounding urban fabric. Rubber crumb circles surround each base to provide safety, visual coherence, and unstructured play networks for children.

This work played on the role of the flag as a statement of identity. This flag is of two minds. It was stolen shortly after installation. A similar work showed at the Open City Art Festival in Lublin, Poland.

Newspapers in newspaper boxes. Compiled from interviews conducted with architects, engineers, artists, and locals. The text describes and analyzes the site and surroundings. The form of the newspaper lent itself easily to moments of leisurely aesthetic and critical reflection in the park.
