Outside the Planter Boxes (Public Intervention Project)
Outside the Planter Boxes (Public Intervention Project)
I participated in a Toronto artist, Sean Martindale's public intervention project. I had so much fun! I love Sean's work, and I have a total respect for him; so I was honoured take part in it. Outside the Planter Boxes intend to direct public attention to Toronto's neglected tree planter boxes. Some of them are in pretty bad shapes. I picked the ones with dead trees and a damaged planter.

I tried not to do a permanent damage to the planters because it would defy the purpose. But it was very hard not to leave any footprint at all. I should've used more natural materials, I was hesitant using polyester fabric, treated paper, markers etc. etc. There were so many things to worry! In the end, I just went for it. If I worry for everything, I'd get nothing done.

The first image is "Magical Tongue." That dude was my favourite. I went to check the next day, and somebody already ripped out his tongue. \( ; o ; )/ Oh why! It kind of hurts. Thing about street art project is... it can be damaged pretty rapidly. So you have to plan for the graceful degradation (which I didn't...).
