A collaborative community project to love trees and remind the world of promises made in Glasgow at the climate conference COP26. 

2016- 2019. PLU code collaborative project.  

Stickers on fruits and vegetables are officially known as price look-up codes. A PLU code turns a banana or a lettuce head into a “value-added” food product. The over 1400 PLU codes in circulation today around the world, for me, symbolize the globalization and commercialization of food. This longer-term collaborative project includes five different works: PLU I, PLU II, PLU III, PLU IV, PLU V. Each piece intends to take a critical yet humorous look at how the foods farmers grow are turned into packaged and labelled products.  

2018. Hey, Did You Drop Something? 

2017. Public Washroom Signs Collaborative Project 

To flush or not to flush? With the introduction of automatic flush toilets, Canadians seem to be confused. This collaborative community project gathered toilet signs from across Canada to make a simple point. Extra copies of the poster available! Just contact me.
