Through Space
Richmond, British Columbia

The Garden City lands in Richmond BC. have become known as a “no man’s land” after many attempts to redevelop the space, with few trails going across the acre of wetland and swamp. Through Space explores the function of signage and the impact of unconventional signage for moving through space. This piece is about permission to step outside the boundaries of the set pathway, not allowing an abstract authority to dictate how we move through space. The irony is in having a sign that tells you nothing at all, and additionally is placed off of the set pathway, defeating the purpose of signage on moving through space.
