It’s difficult to look at what we throw onto the ground as public art, but sometimes I think that’s all I can do. I feel helpless against corporations…Home Depot, Tim Hortons, CPR, South Fish Creek Recreational Center…well, let’s face it, sometimes even the City of Calgary.
There are countless tracts of land that no one wants to OWN. The notion of this continues to amaze me, given that over the centuries, we have fought nation against nation over land. Isn’t it ironic that even in countries in the world where nations are disputing over WHO OWNS THE LAND, they are destroying holy places, museums, libraries, schools, hospitals and the beauty of THE LAND all at the same time. What is with us?
This is the piece of land that I keep wondering about. If I have even a single reader who knows WHO IS RESPONSIBLE for this land…please contact me.
