wandering art

The new school term brings me to a com­mu­ni­ty cen­tre about an hour of sub­way-and-bus ride from my home. I’ve nev­er been to this neigh­bour­hood before and was a bit wor­ried that I would get lost on my way there (I have a real­ly bad sense of direction).

But it turned out to be the eas­i­est bus ride ever! I take the sub­way to the last stop on the line, then take a bus to the last stop in its route, which also hap­pens to be the first stop in its route, because it ends in a loop (I was kind of wor­ried about hav­ing to find the bus that takes me back the oppo­site way — I real­ly have a poor sense of direction).

So that made me real­ly hap­py. But what made me hap­pi­er was the dis­cov­ery of pub­lic art all around the com­mu­ni­ty cen­tre! :D


Peo­ple who have been there before the sum­mer said that the rocks are not where they have been a few months ago. They have been wan­der­ing! It took a while to see all of them, scat­tered around the trees.


I love the idea of art that moves. Always chang­ing. Maybe they’ll get moss and lichens on them and their sur­faces will start to change too. There are many more with words on them. Like “com­mu­ni­ty”, and “tra­di­tions”. There are also ones with­out words. And here’s a feast some­one’s spread­ed out for the ani­mals! :D


And awe­some mur­al on the walls of the com­mu­ni­ty cen­tre itself! Peo­ple told me that it’s new­ly paint­ed, just over the past summer.


Def­i­nite­ly a nice part of the jour­ney into the new school year.

Have an awe­some week­end! :D

  1. That mur­al is awesome!
    …but maybe what they need is a lit­tle yarn bomb installation.
    I won­der WHO could pro­vide that.…
