Pine St Gardens

72” x 7.2"

Putting aside the more obvious political context of this photograph: a community garden on a former railway line being uprooted in order to construct (what I imagine will be) a profit-driven high-rise, this little plot of dirt no bigger than a slice of city block represents Vancouver’s 100+ year history and the evolution of land use here. From wilderness to railway, from industrial corridor being reclaimed as a neighbourhood’s garden, it is now entangled by development limbo.
