Above is one panel from a recent installation at Vancouver’s Waterfront Station. This is another conceptual piece in Vancouver Transit’s Public Art Program. The information plaque from the installation is below and will tell you all you need to know.

The overall installation looks like this…

here comes installation

Except for the information plaque the above photographs are used with thanks to http://www.capturephotofest.com

The plaque and the photos that follow are taken by me. I apologize for the poor quality but wanted to show some other examples of the installed panels to give you a wider idea of the concept:

Who knew so many songs began with “Here comes…”

I found this a much lighter work than “Warning” (The 100′ #86) and reminiscent of Departure and Arrival boards at rail stations and airports. You may wonder, as I did, how this qualifies, for the Capture Fest, as photography. If so, I suggest going to the ‘Capture’ web site shown above.

What do you think?

‘The 100′ series was initiated by my 100th Post in April 2012. As text and images are the essence of my blog my intention is to present 100 pieces of text based art from historical and contemporary artists and from my own hand. To view the series to date click on ‘The 100’ in my Category Menu.

  1. I notice that the big parade and the change come together :)

  2. certainly and always…”hope springs eternal…” ;)…enjoy the ‘big parade’…

  3. An amazing installation. Love the repetitive rhythm and quick total engagement that these words create. They seem to suck your thoughts and emotions into a stream where you are drawn along willingly not knowing where you will end up but loving the experience. Excellent post John!

  4. Here Comes the Gun twists at my mind.
