sculpture installation, mixed media / 12" x 18"
Space Invaders is one project in a series of observational experiments installed on Vancouver’s public transit. The series explores the everyday interactions between people in buses operating in Metro Vancouver and pokes fun at the behaviours, etiquette, and themes that underpin this often awkward and isolated “communal” space. The project consists of plywood cut-outs of characters from the popular 1978 video game Space Invaders. These sculptures unveil the invisible, uncomfortable social space that occupies the empty seats of buses and challenges the concept of privacy in public spaces.
