57 Erb West

This is a piece I did for the Waterloo Gallery's ARTifact(ory) exhibit. It's "an artistic and historic collaboration celebrating Waterloo's architectural heritage
featuring Button Factory artists".

The piece commemorates the Seagram Bonded Warehouse at 57 Erb St. West in Waterloo.

Three Sisters - painting reclaimed plastics

These aren't a new project, but I finally got them photographed when I began archiving all my art (a process which, while ongoing, is made a little easier now that I have the bulk of it done). They are painted CPR dummy heads, in one of which I've implanted a flashing LED. They are currently on display in my home, in the second floor stairway. Seems weird, but I hardly notice them anymore, which is why they only recently got photographed.

A while ago, a friend of mine worked at a cryogenic plastic recycling plant, and they would get such strange things, including circus displays, toy and doll body parts, and many other strange things. I had her keep a lookout for anything strange and weird that I could use in projects, and these CPR heads were probably the best things she brought back (that I could keep).
