Here Comes

Temporary public artwork with 7 pigment prints mounted on Diasec
91.5 x 137 cm (36" x 54") each

Borrowing titles of existing songs that begin with this very phrase, Here Comes couples the vibrant traffic of the project's site with the incessant and repetitive occurences of these words. Detailed and accurate track length information is provided for each title on the panels, pointing to the time one could potentially invest in the vast repertoire of music that accompanies these hopeful and perhaps overly optimistic titles. The project professes for the sad banality of expectation, while concretizing the fervor of the platform through lyrical content.

This project was commissioned by Presentation House Gallery as part of Capture Photo Festival, and shown at the Waterfront Canada Line subway station in Vancouver.
