Build the Road

Build the Road

A frozen landscape, filled
A congestion of cars
An abandoned cart
Its gathered goods consumed
A spray-painted roadblock
Speaks out from a drift
Build the Road

Inspired by a snowstorm and some spray-painted graffiti on a concrete roadblock, I set off on October 23, 2020, to explore a newly constructed transport intersection in Calgary. A trek through the snow revealed some of the signs and lines, traffic and artifacts of urban life.
