Installation, City of York Fire Department office, 1998
Book of collaged images and text, four banners
An installation in the administrative offices of the former City of York Fire Department at Lawrence and Weston Road in Toronto.
I interviewed over twenty firefighters and constructed a wooden “book” of eight “pages”, each collaged with historical and contemporary images and quotes. A text panel displays excerpts from interviews: “Comedy”, “Tragedy”, “Work” and “A Sense of Time and Place”.
Four banners hung from the 17’ foyer: Fire, Water, Courage, Pride.
