Lansdowne Fence Streetscape

This is a corner section from an artwork that was recently installed for hundreds of feet along Lansdowne Ave. It is the site of an old TTC bus and streetcar yard that was torn down in 2003. The land is apparently contaminated by some previous industrial use and will be vacant for awhile so the TTC held an art competition to beautify the chain-link fence. The winners were Scott Eunson and Marianne Lovink with their idea of plywood silhouettes based on imagery from the surroundings. The plywood is installed right onto the fencing. I'll show a few more images in the next couple of days.
