Au Bruit de la Guerre (With the Noise of the War) (2010)
medium: TTC Transit Shelter (permanent)
location: Oakwood Ave (Toronto)
Full of surface tension and explosive colour, this four-panel experimental "comic-poem" translates the visual energy of comic book imagery into a unique graphic code-system. By combining the elements of line, word bubble, sound effect* and cartoon body parts, the work is an abstract visual tornado meant to excite the eye and imply narrative.
* letters employed in this work are ones that are graphically reversible (that read the same forward and reversed) so that the work can be viewed from both sides of the shelter without issue
