Quadrants

For two weeks in January 2018, we shared an art installation in a corner of Calgary’s Gerry Thomas Gallery, a rad little spot in the Beltline. We asked people to help us draw a map of Calgary.

The Projector

The Projector

We wanted to keep it analog on this project, so we got our hands on an old overhead projector. Below the projection, we set up a series of mailboxes and blank postcards for people to engage with. Over the course of a couple weeks, the mailboxes filled up with over 200 notes from people who love their communities.

The Map

On the transparency, we illustrated a map of Calgary inspired by the postcards people dropped in the mailboxes.

Real Stories

Real Stories

Many of the postcards offered a real story about someone we’ve never met, and we loved reading them.

Doodles for Days

Doodles for Days

We ended up quickly sketching out many of the ideas and sharing them over social.
